Subject: Approval of the Renewal of Scantron Achievement Series & Analytics Subscriptions
Vision 2022:
Student Learning
Design curriculum and learning experiences that ensure high literacy and math skills while also developing creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and communication skills.
Learning Support Systems
Implement a school improvement system for support and coordination between core instruction and interventions. (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support MTSS)
Policy:
Background: Elementary and middle school district assessments and the high school academic reading exam are delivered online via Achievement Series. Both in-person and remote students are able to test using the platform. At no additional cost to the district, PLCs can also use Achievement Series to administer pre-existing formative assessments or create their own "quick checks."

Analytics is an online tool which allows administrators and teachers to analyze multiple data sources, including demographics, attendance, and achievement, over multiple years and in relationship to each other. In addition to serving a crucial purpose during typical school years, this analytical agility has proven extremely valuable during the last six months.

The district keeps apprised of available assessment and data analysis options. Achievement Series and Analytics continue to align best with the academic and fiscal goals of Vision 2022.
