Important Resources For Families For Public Assistance

  • Here is a guide for parents on when to consider leaving children at home alone. Here is the Spanish version.

Clarification on how minutes are calculated in iReady

iReady released some new and clarifying data showing families how to monitor students' time spent on the lessons. Good news! Now you can help your child keep track of his/her time on task. The charts below show what does/does not count for minutes which explains why the teacher report was discrepant with what some students thought they were doing. If your child is toggling around on the program or playing learning games, the time is not counted. Only the given lessons are counted toward the daily 30-minute requirement.
