Area of Success: Reading April 1, 2013
We would like the Kane Schools Foundation to know how much we appreciate their support and donations to our school, which has helped improve student achievement. Over the past four years we have seen an increase in the sixth grade students’ DIBELS scores. In earlier years, we have had at least eight to ten students score in the strategic or intensive range in DIBELS testing. Now we are seeing fewer students scoring in those ranges and more students meeting the benchmark for that testing period. This year (2013) we only have one student scoring in the intensive and two students scoring in the strategic ranges. Hooray! This accomplishment was not achieved by just the sixth grade teachers, but by all of our teachers here at Kanab Elementary School.
The Kane Schools Foundation has provided a way for us to acquire materials and resources that have helped improve reading throughout all grades in our school. The foundation has been especially devoted to increasing student literacy and concentrating on providing materials which are readily available to all teachers. Through monies provided by the foundation we have been able to build our school libraries; which includes: guided reading library, six-traits library, take-home library, and classroom libraries. In addition, this organization awarded our elementary a grant to purchase an i-pad for each teacher to complete DIBELS testing. We have found that electronic testing has the following benefits: less student stress, accuracy, saves time, no bulky materials, and instant results. Testing with the i-pad has been a huge success.
So, thank you again Kane Schools Foundation for your tireless efforts and support in our ultimate goal to increase our students’ self-esteem and success. You are the best!
