Schools develop system to track reading progress
Moore County Public Schools are developing a system to track the classroom progress of each student. Targeting individual students for intervention was one of the topics at a school board meeting this week. Principal Jenny Purvis of Vass-Lakeview Elementary School documented the proress of the initaitve. "Our goal is to achieve 80-percent or higher reading proficiency," Purvis told the board. Data cards are being used to track each students progress through the year. "In our office," Purvis explained, "we have color coded cards for all 620 of our students. We can easily tell how a student is progressing and whether or not he or she is in need of intervention." School Superintendent Aaron Spence and Deputy Superintendent Marc Bergin facilitated the presentation.
