DIBELS Screening Deadline September 21

Where do I find the DIBELs screening materials again?

It is that time of year again! Screening data needs to be in iCue by September 21st. There are materials and directions for screening, entering data in iCue and year long screening requirements on the Literacy Site.

Digital Planning Guides Available For Your Use

In the Spring, planning guides were created to help with yearly planning. These guides are located on the CIES site (found on my279.org) on each grade level page.


This guide was created electronically. This is a read only document. Make a copy of this guide and use the copy/paste feature to customize your planning.

Progress Monitoring Update

We will no longer be using AIMSWeb Progress Monitoring. TIES Progress Monitoring will be our new tool. Title I schools piloted this tool last school year. More information will be delivered during the first Monthly System Staff Development Meeting.

Optional Schoology Training

The use of Schoology this school year is optional for Elementary Staff, with the exception of Grade 3 and Grade 5 classroom teachers.


In order to provide a consistent experience for students, families and teachers, it is necessary to complete this course prior to using Schoology with students and families. We will continue to offer self-paced online training.
