The Word Study Team met met Tuesday, Oct, 25 to hear the final details of the Literacy Pilot and to learn from literacy consultants for each of the three programs in order to begin using the first set of materials. 

We’ve bookmarked the details here:

Logistics– Dates of rotations, factoring students who move during a rotation, and considering teacher compensation. See also, Important Dates. 

Communication – where to find updates about the pilot and plans for surveying parents and community members

Classroom Instruction – how substitute teachers will manage during a teacher’s absence, and how the materials fit into the literacy block.

Assessment – details of types and duration of assessments conducted during the pilot and balancing the effect of natural student growth during the pilot.

Pilot evaluation – details for maintaining program integrity and a list of scoring factors that will help determine the final decision.
