LA Goal

84.5% of students will be reading at benchmark by the end of the 2016-17 school year. 

 Math Goals

 1.       Common assessments will be designed and administered to monitor student progress.  These assessments will be given at the beginning, middle and end of the academic school year.

2.       MobyMax placement tests will be given at the beginning, middle and end of year.

a.        Kindergarten:  Eighty percent of all regular education kindergarten students will learn to count to one hundred by tens, count on, write numbers from 0-20, and add and subtract numbers to ten by the end of the school year.               

b.       First Grade:  Eighty percent of all regular education 1st grade students will learn to add and subtract numbers up to 20 with 80% accuracy by the end of the school year.

c.        Second Grade:  85% of all regular education 2nd grade students will learn to add and subtract numbers up to 20 with 95% accuracy using the MobyMax Fact Master Program by the end of the 2016-17 school year.            

d.       3rd-6th Grade:  80% of all regular education students will be at grade level, or have progressed one grade level, in the Moby Max program.
