i-Ready Assessment at TES

Dear Parents and Guardians,

TES will continue implement a Mathematics and Reading program called i-Ready. Below, you will find information about the program and how we will be using it in the classroom.

What is i-Ready?

i-Ready is an online program that will help us determine your child’s strengths and areas for growth, personalize their learning, and monitor their progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows us to meet your child where they are and provides us with data to inform instruction.

The i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment that adjusts its questions to suit your child’s needs. Each item a student receives is based on their answer to the previous question. For example, a series of correct answers will result in slightly harder questions, while a series of incorrect answers will yield slightly easier ones. The purpose of this is not to give your child a score or grade but to determine how to best support their learning.

What can I do to help?

To help prepare your child for the i-Ready Diagnostic, encourage them to:

  • Get a good night’s sleep and eat a full breakfast the day of the assessment.

  • Try their best on each question and try not to rush.

  • Try not to worry about questions to which they do not know the answers—remind them that it is expected that they will only get about half of the questions correct.

  • Be respectful of other students who take longer to finish.

What happens next?

The i-Ready Diagnostic will provide results that help the teachers identify your child’s strengths and determine next steps for instruction. We look forward to sharing these results with you throughout the year and providing a learning experience that will engage your child while teaching important skills and concepts.

If you have any questions about i-Ready, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher. You can also learn more about i-Ready by visiting i-ReadyCentral.com/FamilyCenter.

As always, thank you for your continued support and for being a partner in your child’s learning! It is much appreciated.

School Safety & Security (with updated link)

We are always striving to improve our school safety and security. We are asking for your support in doing do. In our front office we are only having staff and students go beyond the front desk and enter the building unless there is appropriate need for a visitor to do so. If you are coming to the school as a visitor for any reason we ask for your patience while we call someone to meet you at the front desk and escort you to your location. We are also asking for anyone who volunteers as a field trip chaperone, or in the school or a classroom, or eats lunch with their students to complete a background check through Human Resources. Here is the link to a form to submit providing HR the information they need to perform a background check: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc5PlulMB1vipanbwLyLE4qw1Wpl-bDHWSjtsg1c9bAi0Ft3w/viewform
