Universal Screener Date: December 2, 2019 - January 17th, 2020

Mathematics Parent Letter: 

Dear Parent, 

Each semester, every student at The Howard School is given a universal screening assessment to determine his/her math abilities. Your child’s scores show that he/she is struggling in math. Along with the universal screening, your child’s progress has been monitored every two weeks or more. Although he/she is receiving math instruction daily in Tier I math class, he/she has still not shown enough improvement. Your child will now receive an additional 30 minutes of math interventions each day. This Tier II intervention will be done in small groups with trained personnel using research based materials. Your child’s progress will be monitored every other week. Additional assessments maybe completed in order to inform instruction and intervention. You will receive information on your child’s progress. It is our goal to provide the best instruction and materials to help your child succeed.

We encourage you, as the parent or guardian, to ask your child to share his/her math work with you regularly. Be sure to encourage your child to do his/her best and let them know you believe in his/her ability to improve. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact your child’s teacher.
