ACCESS Update from Mr. Sharp

ACCESS Update:

The ESOL team has been hard at work giving the WIDA ACCESS test. We are moving along so much that the students in fourth and fifth grade are almost finished. Just a few more students need to complete speaking and writing. One student needs to take everything.


As to first through third grades, these students are almost done with listening and reading. We should be able to start speaking and writing some time this week probably starting with second grade. Kindergarten students are about 90% done.


Any teachers or teams who have plans for SLOs, let me know so we can schedule around them so the students do their best on all tests. Also please keep me (ssharp@pgcps.org) posted on all team based field trips.
