Virtual Home Visits

Would you like to have a home visit with your student's teacher? We are currently conducting virtual home visits. Home visits are a great way build a supportive and accountable relationships between teachers/staff and families. Please contact your student's teacher if you would like to have a virtual home visit.

MAP Testing

In the next few weeks, we will be conducting our MAP assessment. MAP stands for Measure of Academic Progress. There is nothing the student needs to study and there is no "grade" given. This simply tells us what your child knows and where their weaknesses may be. This assessment is given 2 to 3 times a year, every year, to chart your student's growth. Below I have attached a short video which explains in a little more detail.

MAP Informational Video

The only thing we are asking of our parents and family members, is to be available to help them log in. After that, it is very important that you let your student complete the assessment on their own. Students will be on Zoom with monitors to ensure the validity of the assessment.

Your student's teacher will reach out to you with more information on dates and times.
