Sterling, Morrison part of kindergarten survey
Program determines readiness of students
The Sterling and Morrison school districts are among more than 60 statewide participating in a pilot program to assess the readiness of kindergartners, according to a news release from the Illinois State Board of Education.
The Kindergarten Individual Development Survey aims to measure kindergartners’ skills and knowledge and inform educators about the learning and developmental needs of students in preschool through early elementary school.
The survey will monitor growth and development over time, identify students’ strengths and generate more effective classroom instruction. The survey also will provide school, district and state leaders with reliable data to make informed decisions about where resources and professional development are most needed.
