2020-2021 District Assessment Goals

Iowa Assessments
We plan to look at this data in the fall of 2021-2022. We will be taking the assessment in March-April 2021 (3-11 grade) after cancelling the assessment in spring 2020 (due to Covid 19 closure)

Early Intervention (FastBridge)
By the Spring of 2021, the percentage of students (K-8) will be at 80% proficient, with the intent that all grade levels will work to make up lost proficiency from the spring of 2020 (due to Covid 19 closure) (K-1 (Early Reading),2-5 (CBM-R), 6-8 (aReading)).
