Each 9 Weeks--our goal is to complete and pass a minimum of 5 tests on Renaissance. By the end of Kindergarten, all students must pass 20 AR books with a score of 80% or above. Here is a list of Books that are on Epic and Renaissance. It will help if the student will read the book on Epic first, take the quiz on Epic (to get familiar with test questions) and then login to Renaissance and take the quiz. In order for the test to count on Renaissance, they must receive a passing score of 80% or above.

We have several different intervention websites we use.
Iready: Go to the website: https://login.i-ready.com/ The students have Teacher Assigned assignments that will appear on Monday of each week. These are due by noon on Friday of each week. They will also have assignments under 'My Path' to complete. They will need to complete 2 for Reading and then 2 for Math under 'My Path'. **Grades are recorded on the 'Teacher Assigned' assignments. If the assignments aren't completed each week, a zero will be recorded in the Gradebook. Please make sure your child completes these assignments weekly.**
If your child has been assigned to use MyLexia, remember that intervention program replaces their MyPath on I-Ready for Reading Only.
