Supporting Student Growth in ELA & Math
As home educators, time is precious and our schedules are full. Growth monitoring is a quick and easy way for parents to check in on students’ academic progress. Your teacher can set this up for you through i-Ready, as well as be available to answer any questions regarding the ELA/math resources and the growth monitoring process.
