Component #3 - State Adopted Literacy Screeners
The district will use the State's provided literacy screener, mCLASS®, to identify students in grades K through 3 who have reading deficiencies. For students in grades 3-5, the district has aligned with the State by adopting MAP© as the screening tool for both reading and math. Screening occurs three times a year, in the Fall, Winter, and Spring of the academic school year. Additional diagnostic assessments and progress monitoring will continue throughout the year for students who are identified as below or far below grade level proficiency by the screener. Progress monitoring and diagnostic assessments will inform intervention instruction and the grouping of students in the school's MTSS intervention plan.
