Purpose of Changes:
Increase face to face contact with parents. Parent survey indicated parents are interested in having the opportunity to meet with teachers to discuss their child’s progress.

Align Quarters with Illuminate benchmarks. Teachers will be assessing student progress by administering Illuminate benchmarks four times per year. We will use this data to drive instruction and ensure students are progressing towards achieving standards.
