Summary: For the last 6 years, Mt. Diablo has contracted with Curriculum Associates to access the iReady online program for reading and mathematics helping teachers determine students’ needs, personalize their learning, and monitor progress throughout the school year. Prior to the pandemic, the District purchased only the diagnostic assessment to monitor the progress of 1st-3rd grade students and emerging bilingual students in grades TK-12. Since that time, sites have been purchasing the additional instructional modules using their site budgets to help with learning recovery efforts allowing students to access the standards-based and adaptive program during the school day and from home during school breaks. With the influx on Learning Recovery Grant funds, staff is recommending the approval of a District contract with Curriculum Associates which would include the of adaptive iReady diagnostic assessments, in addition to the online instructional modules which teachers use for scaffolding instruction and that can be accessed at home as well as school. The data collected would be used by teachers to inform instruction and by the District as a local assessment to assess student progress towards grade level state standards mastery in reading and math at the elementary level and support the reclassification of emerging bilingual students. This item is being presented for information and will be brought back for approval at a future board meeting.
Funding: Learning Recovery Emergency Block Grant (One time funds)
Fiscal Impact $639,559
Recommendation: Review the annual contract with Curriculum Associates for software licenses for the 2023-24 school year. Item will be brought back for approval at a future board meeting.
