Petersburg middle and high schoolers are back taking mandated-state tests Thursday, March 31 after a cable-break in Kansas knocked out testing statewide Tuesday morning. Students in in grades six through 10 were part-way through completing the math portion of the test when the interruption happened. Officials think the students answers were recorded and not lost.

Meanwhile, the middle and high schools have been juggling schedules around the testing time-out. Joe Viechnicki spoke with superintendent Erica Kludt Painter and testing coordinator Bridget Wittstock Wednesday afternoon about the schedule changes.

The district was expecting to have students taking the English language arts portion of the test Thursday, finish up the math test Friday and then have eighth and 10th graders take the science test on Monday afternoon.
