Samuel R. Donald Bi-Monthly Update 10/23/20

i-Ready Update

The i-Ready parent reports should have reached you this week. We are utilizing this data to identify trends or areas of weakness that may need to be addressed. It is a tool for the teachers to identify how to support each student. It will not be used for placement in any way and students will be taking a mid and end of year diagnostic to see growth. With gaps in understanding due to the pandemic, we wanted to be able to hit the ground running with all students.
