For Parents of Children in Grades 3 - 8: Understanding i-Ready

November 3, 2020 


Dear Parents of Students in Grades 3 through 8,  


We are excited to let you know that our students in grades 3 through 8 will have access to i-Ready interactive learning software.   


What is i-Ready? 

i-Ready is an interactive online learning environment designed to assess students and provide individualized instruction based on each one's unique needs. Your child will be using materials from the i-Ready Program this year in English language arts and math. 


Beginning next week (November 2nd) and continuing through the end of January, students will be expected to complete i-Ready instructional activities each day for approximately 30-45 minutes each day.   


These activities will be assigned to students based on their instructional needs from the diagnostic assessments recently administered.  At the end of this cycle, the students will be taking another diagnostic assessment (end of January).   It is important for your child to work independently as they complete this assessment so their teachers receive accurate data, and the children are receiving the appropriate corresponding lessons and independent practice.   


See attached i-Ready newsletter for specific information about logging on and monitoring your child’s progress.
