MAP Scores to Be Sent Home TODAY 3/2/2020



Winter MAP scores will be sent home on Monday in the Monday Folder. Please use these results as a snapshot of your student's progress thus so far this year, and know that this is only ONE of MANY measurements of student success. We will be using these scores to guide each student's PEP (Personalized Education Plan). Ask your student about their PEP plan!!


Please celebrate your student's growth, and if encourage a growth mindset for working hard to make the most of our learning for the final semester. Remember- this is ONE of many measurements of growth. We are very proud of our students, parents, and teachers for their hard work!


Test scores will NOT be sent home for Kindergarten. MAP testing in Kindergarten is meant for preparation for testing in 1st-5th grades and in general, the first MAP test is not an accurate measure of their skills, due to this being the 1st time that the students are navigating the computer in a testing environment.


Wanting to know more about MAP Reports? Please see the MAP parent resource link.

FAQs and a short video on how to read the MAP report is included. See Below!


https://www.nwea.org/parent-toolkit/

If you have questions about your student's score, reading the report, or any other celebrations or concerns, please contact your child's teacher.

All CUSD volunteers are required to:

· Complete a Volunteer Application

· Provide a current photo ID

· Present verification of a negative TB Test within the last 4 years.

· Volunteers who will be supervising students "Out of the line of sight" of the teacher require fingerprinting.

If you have not already submitted your volunteer application and documents, please do so as soon as possible.
