Special Points of Interest:
· Related Service, Class, and Resource schedules are complete
· Maps Testing is continued next week
· PICTURE DAY MONDAY 20TH!
The entire school is doing MAPS testing this year, the purpose is to help us monitor where specifically students need interventions.
Students will take this test with IEP accommodations that are allowed to keep the test valid. Results will be included in my benchmarking, to guide specific intervention tools that need to be used.
These are a work in progress, Ms. Rose is training staff next week. Let me know if there is anything vital missing.
At the beginning of the year assessments are given by Ms. Rose to assess where the students are in alignment with their goals. These take several weeks to complete and I hope to have a summary to you for conferences.
Please initial assignment notebooks when students complete their reading etc, at home. Ms. Rose is giving additional stickers for completed hw.
Remember homework is based on individual family and student need, let us know if something is not working out.
As always trainings will be done on an ongoing basis throughout the school year. If you would like us to collaborate with an outside therapist, please make sure we have a consent form to communicate with them and their information.
I am looking forward to learning more in the areas of vision, executive functioning, and social skills this year and sharing this information with staff.
