PSAs and Targeted Group Structure

PSAs

  • PSAs will now be completed on Illuminate and data will be extracted via the pie chart that the report displays
  • PSA data must be posted in your classrooms and updated weekly
  • If there are times when PSAs cannot be administered on Wednesday, choose another day that week to provide the quiz

Targeted Group Structures

  • This week, all teachers need to lesson plan for targeted group instruction and your lesson plan must reflect it
  • Use the one -pager provided during our instructional meeting to guide your planning
