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.

An important indicator of kindergarten readiness is reading at home. For this reason, we are tracking Jefferson County Library’s data in the 80214 area.
