Information from Hillside's Reading Teachers for Extended Campus Families (Semester 2)
All elementary children in the Westside Community Schools District participate in academic screenings in the fall, winter and spring of each school year as part of the MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Supports) process. These screenings allow us to adapt our instruction to best meet student needs.
We have a small window to collect this information and make instructional decisions. Best testing practices say for a teacher to administer these tests in person. This would be done one- on-one on a Wednesday "flex" day (no students at Hillside on that day). We would have all other district safety mandates in place (plexiglass barrier, masks worn, sanitized surfaces).
Our Winter Screening Assessments for Extended Campus students will be on Wednesday January 13th any time from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.. Teachers will be available to assess your student(s) in the cafeteria. Children should enter Door 11 (by the cafeteria) while parents wait in the parking lot. Grade 2-6 students' assessments should take 5-10 minutes to complete. K-1 assessments will take about 20 minutes. Students will then be escorted to the parent/guardian vehicle.
