Dear CMS Families,
To help teachers provide the best instruction to keep our students growing and learning across
the school year we use a program called i-Ready in Math and ELA. This is a diagnostic test
given three times a year designed to provide us with actionable insight on your child’s needs. We
give this test three times a year so we can check on the growth of your child.
This year we will have to offer this test to some of our students remotely. It is important that
your children take this as an actual assessment as they would take in school without assistance. If
they don’t know an answer, that is ok! The data collected helps inform your child’s teachers in
their instruction and possible interventions the students may need.
If you would like to learn more, i-Ready is offering a free webinar tonight, Monday October 5
between 4:00-4:30 p.m. and Tuesday, October 6 between 6:30-7:00 p.m. It is a tour of the platform and a conversation around how i-Ready helps teachers serve the best instruction to keep your child
growing and learning across the school year.
