Summary: Mt. Diablo Unified School District is proud to participate in a project with UCSF/Learning Ally. The latter agencies are developing a screener to be administered to students at select schools in grades TK-1. The screener will be administered at three points during the year and will take approximately 30 minutes per student. The selected sites are Bel Air, Wren, Valhalla, Gregory Gardens, Sunrise and Fair Oaks.
Data will be used to both validate the screener which will be used more broadly in future years and also to inform instruction for students.
Funding: N/A
Fiscal Impact None
Recommendation: Receive information regarding the partnership between MDUSD and UCSF/Learning Ally to administer the Screener to students in select schools in grades TK-1 in keeping with the study.
