Interventions Update: We wanted to provide an update as we approach the 8-10 week timeframe for students participating in interventions to share that interventions are going to continue for those students. The student(s) will be participating in end of year assessments such as DIBELS and the Math Inventory next month which will provide a benchmark indicator of growth. You will receive another update regarding information on your child’s progress at that time. Should you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher or interventionist.

SOL Assessment Schedule: The SOLs will take place between May 15th- June 2nd. Please see the schedule linked here.
