How will we know if they have learned? (Assessment)
Through the use of both formative (for learning) and summative assessments (of learning), we work to better match instruction to the learning needs of our students. Formative assessments help teachers make adjustments to current instruction to meet the needs of the students while summative assessments help provide a summary of what students have learned. Based on the intended learning defined in the curriculum, teachers use these assessments to best ensure that we are meeting the learning needs of all students.
What will we do if they don't learn? (Response to Intervention)
The district is in the process of developing and implementing Response to Intervention (RtI) framework to help support each student at their achievement level. Beginning with quality core instruction in the classroom, teachers work to differentiate instruction to meet each student at their level. Additional tiered support from small group to almost individual support is provided for students to support their learning in the core classroom.
