For the 2022-2023 school year, second-grade students will not be retained based on the success criteria points.
This year, students in kindergarten, first, and second grade will be monitored and supported by utilizing the following measures in ELA: report card grades, formative assessment, the universal screener, and the summative assessment.
Keeping parents and guardians of students K-2 informed on their child’s progress is our top priority, therefore all K-2 teachers will receive on-going training and resources regarding implementation of the policy, training and tracking student progress and the required parent communications necessary for success. The school will be required to develop and implement a progress monitoring plan for the child. The plan must be developed "in consultation with the parent.
