A Message from Mrs. Fantaskey


Dear Doyle Parents and Guardians,

Central Bucks School District is committed to ensuring that each child makes significant academic progress. To do this, we have been implementing a research-based process to link academic support with specific student learning needs. This process is known as a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) and provides all students with timely and targeted instruction based upon the results of various assessment tools in reading and mathematics.

The universal assessments provide baseline data that will allow our educators to design and deliver targeted instruction to ensure that your child is learning the appropriate skills at each grade level. These screening assessments are typically administered to all students two or three times per year. Student and grade level scores are reviewed by the MTSS School Team. Using the data, teams identify students or student groups in need of targeted, skill-specific intervention or enrichment. The use of universal assessment tools refines and strengthens our efforts to help all of our students be successful by allowing us to take positive and preventative measures as early as possible.

The universal assessment tools in math and reading are very similar to tools we use every day to help us determine where students might have gaps in knowledge and need assistance. They replace the tools we have used in previous years such as the Developmental Reading Assessment (or DRA), the Leveled Reading Assessment (or LRA), and the CB Math Screening Assessment.

The Star Assessments by Renaissance, which were adopted by the district last year, are completed by students electronically in class. More information for parents is available on the Renaissance website at Parent's Guide - Star Assessments | Renaissance. The Star Assessments are simply one tool amongst many that Central Bucks uses to help determine and deliver timely, targeted instruction for our students. As in the past with our prior assessments, you will be notified if your child is in need of intervention or enrichment supports.

Thank you for your willingness to assist us in building a system of student supports that is linked directly to data. This will ensure that each of our students has the opportunity to receive the assistance they need to achieve academic success. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions.

Kind regards,

Kate Fantaskey, Principal

Free & Reduced Lunch Applications

Eligible families are strongly encouraged to apply for Free & Reduced lunch status. The information in this newsletter will help walk you through the process. Lunches are no longer free for all students. If you believe you may be eligible and have not completed the application, please do so as soon as possible.

CBSD is currently accepting applications for Free & Reduced Lunch. Students who qualify for the Free and Reduced School Meals Program may also qualify for a variety of needs-based assistance based on their program eligibility. Federal law requires the family’s consent before Central Bucks School District can use or share eligibility status for purposes other than the provision of free or reduced lunch. This information will only be shared if you consent to help provide needs-based assistance to your student that may be beneficial to your family. Your decision to share or not share this information will not in any way affect your eligibility status for the Free and Reduced School Meals Program; it is completely optional.

If your student(s) qualifies for the Free and Reduced School Meals Program, you will receive a notification of a document that needs your attention in the Parent Portal. The Free/Reduced Lunch Information Sharing Consent Form requests permission to use the eligibility status to qualify for various needs-based assistance and programming. You may consent for all areas listed below, decline consent to all areas, or provide partial consent. See the link below for instructions to complete this consent form.

Free/Reduced Lunch Information Sharing Consent Form Instructions

Best wishes for a wonderful start to the school year.

Student Information Update for All Students

Please be sure to update the Student Information Section on the parent portal. This must be completed each year for ALL students. Updating this emergency form ensures that we can contact you and that you will receive emails and important communications from the school and district. Please update as soon as you can! Thank you for your attention to this.
