NEWS FROM DR. CHAUSSEE
READ-AT-HOME PLAN FOR STUDENT SUCCESS
Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
In December we finished our second round of MAP testing. Abbott made good growth from the fall to the winter. Our fall to winter growth school average was in the 73rd percentile for math and 71st percentile for reading. Both scores were in the top ⅕ of all MPS elementary schools. On the other hand, about 30% of our students did not meet their projected growth. Students in grades K-3 that fall below a certain threshold are on plans developed by the teachers and communicated to parents. The threshold numbers were in a December issue of the Gator Tales. The Nebraska Department of Education has produced a document to help parents help their children at home. Our goal is move all students above the threshold and set them on a path of being a successful reader. Students will do best if both home and school work on this. The link is below:
