In order to achieve our goal for all students to be prepared for the opportunity to attend college when they graduate, the district and its school teams use data-driven practices to guide instruction. The district uses results from the PSSA, DIBELS NEXT, and classroom-based assessments to monitor the progress of its students. Instructional intervention is planned at all levels to provide additional support of classroom instruction.

When a student continues to struggle to make academic or social/emotional growth, they may be referred for additional testing through the Multi-disciplinary Evaluation Process.  Because this is an individual Assessment, parent permission is sought out. Parents may also request this evaluation in writing to the building principal. Please refer to the link for the Special Education Division for more detailed information about the referral process. Our school psychologists work closely with parents, students, and school teams to gather all relevant data to determine the needs of the student. It is the goal of the psychologists to assist the school teams in developing a clear understanding of the student’s learning and to improve student achievement.
