Goal 2: Kindergarten Readiness

Students will be prepared for kindergarten

To measure readiness for kindergarten, we are using results of the DIBELS test that kindergarten students take at the beginning of the school year. This test measures the critical skills necessary for successful beginning reading though it doesn’t measure the full spectrum of what it means to be ready for kindergarten. The DIBELS test is done in English, so it is not an accurate measurement for students learning to read in Spanish within a dual language kindergarten classroom.
