69% of the VDV 3-5 teaching staff has provided 5 or more opportunities for parent/guardian involvement in their student’s educational experiences, as of February 2016. Most of the opportunities have been here at school where parents attended a classroom, or school-wide, event. Some of these opportunities for parent involvement took place in the home through parent/guardian collaboration with the student to complete a project and/or long-term assignment. Our goal is to reach 80% of the teaching staff to create 5 or more opportunities that will increase parent/guardian involvement in their student’s educational experiences.

November WIG Update
Each student in grades 3, 4, and 5 is assessed using the Fountas & Pinnell (F&P) leveled reading assessment. Teachers use the individual student’s reading record to identify which F&P reading level the students’ skills correspond. The chart below demonstrates the Independent Reading Levels in comparison to the grade level in school.
The baseline data collected in September demonstrates the independent reading levels for each student in grades 3, 4, and 5. The students will be assessed in January and then again in June. The results will be compared to the baseline data to determine the overall effectiveness of this year’s WIG.
