The school year is coming up and this is a reminder that you and your Kindergarten/1st grade student will schedule a one-hour assessment conference with your child’s teacher on Sept. 4th or 5th. The first day of school for Kindergarten and First grade is Thursday, September 6. Look for information, including the online sign-up, in the back-to-school communication. The outcome of the assessments help the teacher understand the unique learning needs of your student. Our district’s focus is on personalized learning and an assessment at the start of the year identifies what students don’t know yet, which helps teachers know where to begin. A portion of the conference is set aside for a conversation with you and anything you want to share about your student.
We have an online sign up tool for scheduling assessment conferences. Be sure to click on the name of your student’s teacher (found on portal) to view their available times:
