By doing these needs assessments, it allows me the opportunity to gather information and data to help best serve the students and families here at Ray Childers Elementary School. I have created a student needs assessment, teacher needs assessment, and parent needs assessment. By gaining input from all of these sources I am able to create classroom guidance lessons as well as small groups that will meet the needs of our students.
It is very beneficial to complete these needs assessments multiple times throughout the school year as everyone's need continue to change. By completing the needs assessments quarterly times also helps me check that our student's understanding. During our classroom guidance lessons in September, we have worked hard to complete all student's initial needs assessments.
