Parent Input Requested- ED FLEX Waiver (Title IV-A)
Our system is seeking input from our parents and community members.  We are committed to creating a learning culture built on high expectations for learning with quality programs and services, including an analysis of results.  At our middle school, our goal is to increase iReady Math/ELA scores by 5% over expected growth during the 2020-21 school year.  Our middle school is also continually focused on building relationships between school and home.  Please take a moment and share ideas for helping our students to increase their iReady Math/ELA scores by 5% this school year and to build relationships between school and home.
