Grade Level Pictures…Postponed

We are postponing our grade level pictures that were scheduled for Friday until further notice. We hope to do those later this year.

Universal Behavior Screener

Parents, as part of our participation in the RTI2-B program this year at McFadden to encourage and support positive behavior, we are required to conduct a universal behavior screener. To simplify this explanation, the "universal screener" simply means that your child's teacher is filling out a checklist/rating scale on each child to see who may be in need of additional academic and behavioral supports. The results of this screener will be shared with the RTI2-B team and other school staff in the building that assist students. These results will be used to provide supportive and positive behavioral interventions to students. This is another piece of data that we will use to assist the whole child, but instead of an assessment that looks at only academic data this is instead looking at a child's social and emotional strengths and challenges. We are excited about this tool and think it will be valuable. As a parent, I intend for all my children to participate. You DO have the right to opt-out of this screening, however, using the attached form. If you do NOT wish for your child to be a part of this universal screening, please fill out the attached form and either send a hard copy or email back a digital copy to your child's teacher by September 7th. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions. Thanks! 🙂 Mrs. Puffer
