Principals, teachers asked to distribute kindergarten readiness assessment score flyers to parents

The Mississippi Department of Education is encouraging all elementary school principals and teachers to distribute the Understanding Your Child’s Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Score flyer to parents of kindergarteners to help them better understand their child’s results of this year’s assessment.

All Mississippi public-school children take a Kindergarten Readiness Assessment at the beginning of the school year. Schools have begun issuing assessment results to parents of kindergarten students. A student’s score lets parents and teachers know whether students are on track to be proficient readers by the end of third grade.

Kindergarteners who score below 530 at the beginning of the year may need extra support or interventions to become better readers. Download the flyer here  – literacy_readiness _scores.
