January - Winter Assessments

 

The month of January starts our winter assessment period. Throughout the month, students will be assessed via assessment tools like: AimsWeb, PNOA, PAST, Words their Way and SBAC. Data will be collected and evaluated to determine if students are on track or if interventions are needed to finish out the rest of the school year to prepare for the spring testing. Report cards that will review the first half of the school year will be delivered at the end of the month.
