- 62.5% of the students who began the school year reading below their current grade level have advanced 3 or more levels within the F&P leveled reading assessment
- 25% of the students who began below grade level have advanced by 2 levels within the F&P leveled reading assessment
- 95.1% of the students who began the school year reading on grade level have advanced 2 or more levels within the F&P reading assessment

Van Derveer grade 3-5 teachers and staff are committed to the advancement of each student’s independent reading level. We will continue to infuse the ELA Common Core Standards in teaching pedagogy to ensure sustainable growth for EVERY student.
February WIG Update
The Van Derveer 3-5 teachers are continuously working to meet our Wildly Important Goal for 2015. Based on the data collected from this cycle, students have shown progress in their independent reading levels and the majority are currently on, or above their grade level. Reading opportunities created by the 3-5 teachers, combined with RTI blocks, guided reading groups, and the before school reading program have assisted with getting us closer to our goal of ensuring sustainable growth for every student.
November WIG Update
“I will infuse the ELA Common Core Standards into my pedagogy to ensure sustainable growth for EVERY student”
Each student in grades 3, 4, and 5 is assessed using the Fountas & Pinnell (F&P) leveled reading assessment. Teachers use the individual student’s reading record to identify which F&P reading level the students’ skills correspond. The chart below demonstrates the Independent Reading Levels in comparison to the grade level in school.
The baseline data collected in September demonstrates the independent reading levels for each student in grades 3, 4, and 5. The students will be assessed in January and then again in June. The results will be compared to the baseline data to determine the overall effectiveness of this year’s WIG.
