News and Updates from Mrs. Adelman - September 24, 2021
From the Desk of Mrs. Adelman
Parents and Guardians,
Central Bucks School District is committed to ensuring that each child makes significant academic progress. To do this we have begun a research-based process to link academic support with specific student learning needs. This process is known as Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (or MTSS) and provides all students with timely and targeted instruction based upon the results of universal screening tools in reading and mathematics.
The universal screening assessment provides baseline data that will allow our educators to provide 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 screenings 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 screening 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 are completed by students electronically in class. More information for parents is available on the Renaissance website at Parent's Guide - Star Assessments | Renaissance. As in the past with our prior assessments, you will be notified if your student is selected for participation in an intervention or enrichment program.
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.
Mrs. Amy Adelman

Hi Warwick Bears!

If you would like to walk your child up to the building, we ask that you please park in an assigned parking spot and use the crosswalk for safety. Please do not enter the front loop between 8:45-9:05AM and 3:45 - 4:05PM. Thank you for your cooperation!
- Picture Day: October 1st. Classes will sign up for times throughout the day. If you have a virtual student that would like to come into the building for picture day, we have reserved 1PM-2PM for virtual pictures. C&C packets should have come home this week to look over the picture packages for picture day.
- Photo ID: If you are visiting Warwick to be a special classroom visitor or to pick up your child(ren) please don't forget your photo ID. We will use our School Gate Guardian system to print visitor badges.

If you answered yes to one or both of these questions don't forget to submit your volunteer required paperwork (if you haven't done so previously and/or if your clearances are out of dates).
