Procedure for Requesting Supplies
If you are in need of basic supplies, please come to room 533 to fill out a 'request for supply form'. The forms are located in a black binder, on Mr. Schaudt's desk, labeled 'Supply Request'.
Small items will be placed in your mailbox. Large items need to be picked up in room 533, packages will be clearly marked with your name. Please allow 48 hours for your order to be filled. An email will be sent out notifying when your item has been placed in your mailbox or is ready for pick-up.
ELA/Math Item Skills Analysis Tool for Currently Enrolled Students
You could access the Item Skills Analysis (ISA) tool in your school’s ARIS private community for students who were enrolled at your school during the grades 3–8 ELA and math Common Core exams. You may now access an ISA workbook for students who are currently enrolled at your school. The tool displays results for your current students on each item of the 2014 grades 3–8 Common Core state tests and may be used to understand student performance by standard (whether students met the standard that the question was designed to test), reflect on school practice (including identifying where to target support), and to guide instructional decisions.
For instructions on using the ISA tool, click here.
