  • students in grades K-3 will reach a combined pass rate of at least 60% on grade level benchmark assessments as measured by the DRA2, DRA2-WA, PMT, or other state assessments.  
  • students in grades 4-6 will reach a combined pass rate of at least 85% on grade level benchmark assessments as measured by the DRA2, DRA2-WA, PMT, or other state assessments.  
  • students in specific subgroups (ELL, SWD, Black and Hispanic) will demonstrate improved performance as evidenced by unadjusted SOL Reading pass rates.

Strategy 1

  • Teachers will use a balance of small group instruction to include, reading conferences, strategy groups and guided reading.

Strategy 2

  • Teachers will use Word Talks in grades K-6 to strengthen students’ vocabulary.

Strategy 3
