ASSESSMENT AND ACCOUNTABILITY
Kindergarten students are given the Brigance Kindergarten Readiness Screener during a 30-day window that opens 15 days prior to the first day of the school year and ends 15 days after the beginning of the school year. Kindergarten students are also given the STAR Early Literacy Universal Screener along with 1st graders. As students become readers, the STAR Universal Screener is administered a minimum of two times per year – in the fall and spring. Formal accountability with state testing begins at the end of the 3rd grade.
