Engage Every Family: Five Simples Principles by Steven M Constantino

"The Principles are a systematic process that can be overlaid into schools or school districts so that measurable and tangible results can be recorded and celebrated." The logic model below represents the thinking behind the program. It is designed into a logical sequence of action. Schools wishing to bring about systemic reform in family engagement should begin at the beginning with Principle 1 and follow the model clockwise.

MaxScholar Rosters Due

Your school's final MaxScholar Roster is due by October 20th. Do not wait until the last day of the i-Ready testing window to begin finalizing your MaxScholar lists. Who should be in MaxScholar?

  • Students in grades 1-3 who scored below the 12th percentile on the Winter Administration of MAP are required to have Tier 3 Intervention.
  • Kindergarten students who score below 405 on FLKRS are also required to have Tier 3 Intervention.
  • Students in grades K-3 who score in the Red Zone on i-Ready Diagnostic, using the Beginning-of-the-Year view, are also required to have Tier 3 Intervention.

Once a student begins instruction with MaxScholar, he or she will remain in the program for the entire year unless removed by the MTSS Team.

Why are we looking at Beginning-of-Year Placement in i-Ready?
