Monitoring and Supporting Student Success

Student achievement is the District’s highest priority. In 3rd grade, students are no longer “learning to read” but they begin “reading to learn.” If students are not reading on grade level by the time they begin 3rd grade, half of the curriculum they will be taught for the remainder of their school years will be beyond their understanding. The Literacy Commitment is a collaborative effort between schools, parents, and community to ensure our students reach reading readiness.

As a District, we are monitoring and supporting student success in grades K-2 using a universal screener (iReady). Any time a student is not meeting grade-level expectations, families are notified. Reading readiness updates shared during school meetings, parent-teacher conferences, report cards, and Academic Support Plan letters.

The chart below shows the Lexile levels (benchmarks) students are expected to meet to be considered on grade-level.
