Brace yourselves... Florida School grades are out...
It's always an exciting time to find out your school's grade, right?
Is my school still an A?
We moved from a C to a B!
I hope we're not still a D...
As hopeful as we can be for a positive overall school grade, it's time to dig a little deeper, especially if your child did not score at a Level 3 (proficiency) or above.
And if your child has a disability, how are they scoring? If they are below proficiency, are they making learning gains?
If your child is making learning gains, great! That means they more than likely have:
accommodations that are relevant to their needs and are being provided
specially designed instruction that is closing learning gaps
teachers who review, re-teach, and pre-teach
opportunities to engage in learning
If your child is not making learning gains, no matter how small, it's time to start asking questions.
It might be as simple as asking, WHY?
If your child with a disability is not making learning gains, it's time for us to have a conversation.
