- 100% of our families participated in Fall and Spring Student Led Conferences in 2019-2020
Area of Focus
- Through a multi-tiered system of support and Universal Design for Learning strategies we are focused on creating indivualized supports for social emotional needs of students.
Goal 4- Content Area Competency
- The percentage of students reading on level in grades K-5 as measured by iReady increased from 23% to 34% from fall to winter 2021
- 65% of students are on target to make a typical or accelerated year’s growth as measured by iReady reading.
Area of Focus
- We are focusing on increasing, by at least 10% each year, the percentage of students in 3rd grade meeting standard on reading as measured by SBA so that at least 80% are meeting standard by 2026.
