It is our mission to help our students become fluent readers and show progress towards proficiency. Our recent FAST results have prompted increased attention to this area. Intentional teaching of fluency can be observed in many classrooms through anchor charts, modeling, practice opportunities, and feedback. Continued implementation of what was presented in professional development around fluency is essential for student success.

Driven By Data

Spending time analyzing data as deeply as we have and writing action steps based on that analysis will only yield results if those actions are implemented in practice. This week during Walkthroughs I was able to see evidence of action steps in many classrooms. Please take time to review your action steps. You are key to student to student learning!
