Team Focus

Pathways of Progress

Teachers, check out the video connected to the link below. It is a new resource that aligns to Dibels. It could be helpful to you with setting your goal as it provides percentages to indicate how likely the type of progress you are shooting for is with each student based on his/her BOY results. Kristen has offered to do a quick training for everyone so I will schedule that asap.
