Star Reports Coming Home Grades 3-6
This school year all 3rd - 12th graders in WCSU schools have taken two new assessments called STAR Reading and STAR Math. WES grades 3-6 students' winter STAR reports were scheduled to go home in sealed envelopes with the students at the end of the week.
The purpose of STAR Reading and STAR Math assessments is to provide your child’s teachers with information about how your child is doing in reading and math compared to other students across the country, and to identify what topics your child is ready to learn next.
The STAR Parent reports include a space for parent signature, but you do not have to return this report to the school.
While the STAR Reading and STAR Math assessments are helpful, they are only one measure of how your child is doing in school. Your child’s report card and schoolwork can also provide valuable information about how they are doing in school.
If you have any general questions about the STAR reports you are receiving, please contact Ms. Mills. If you have questions about your individual student's progress, please contact your child’s classroom teacher.
