Background: This presentation is aligned to the Board's action in February 2018 to review district data regularly throughout the school year. This report will review the student performance results on STAR and the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS) from spring 2019. STAR is the district universal screener that is used to assess students' performance and growth in early literacy, reading and math. All students in K5 through grade 10 take the STAR screener. PALS is the foundational reading assessment chosen by MPS to meet the requirement of Wisconsin Statute 118.016 (1)(a). PALS is administered to all K4 through grade 2 students in the district. Both assessments are given in English and Spanish.
