Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions:

What does W.I.N. stand for?

W.I.N. is the acronym used at Bonner that stands for “What I Need.” Each student has different academic needs, so we use this dedicated time to ensure each child is in the correct learning space for their instructional needs.


What does my student miss from their classroom while being in another classroom for W.I.N?

Your student will not be missing any core curriculum (reading, language arts, math science, or social studies) or specials (art, music, or phy ed) during this time.


Will my student have any additional homework?

Students will not have any homework assigned or have any make up work to do if they are absent.


How does my student qualify?

Bonner uses a system called FASTBridge Learning to assess students. All students are benchmarked or tested three times a year to identify which students may need additional instruction to meet grade-level goals. When a student scores below the 20th percentile they qualify for extra reading support.


How does my student exit?

During W.I.N. we continue to use FASTBridge Learning to progress monitor, a frequent assessment to make sure students are making progress. Once they have reached the goal three to four times they are able to exit and other students may be added.
