Universal Screening Process for Grade 3 Students

Looking for more info on the Universal Screening Process for Grade 3 Students going on at Gledhill this week?

Effective September 2016, the Toronto District School Board introduced a universal screening process for all Grade 3 students across the board. The purpose of this universal screening test is to:

  • Provide information to classroom teachers about the strengths and learning needs of each student in order to better support teachers in programming for students
  • Help teachers to know when to bring a student forward to In School Team (IST) or School Support Team (SST) for programming suggestions
  • Improve equity of access for all students to differentiated programming including the potential identification of students with a gifted exceptionality

There are several useful FAQ and Parent Information documents available on the TDSB site which may contain answers to your questions:

Appreciate those teachers!

Today is World Teachers’ Day — a day to show our appreciation for all the hard work that teachers do, day and night, to educate, encourage and inspire our children.  SACA put apples in teachers’ mailboxes on Friday, and we are bringing in treats for them on Monday.  Feel free to add to the goodies in the staffroom yourself!

Day of Protest tomorrow
