Greetings Tiger Nation:
There will be some schedule changes beginning the second quarter, Monday, November 5th. We have decided to return to a block schedule for literacy and mathematics to better serve students as individual learners. This change will allow us to serve students by ability in smaller groupings and give students the flexibility to move between academic groupings. We have assessed our students and have determined this will be a better way to service the needs of all students. These changes will predominately affect the students who were placed in the approaching group. The majority of students will not have any changes to their current schedule.
We have been fortunate enough to gain the expertise of a literacy consultant, who will support instruction in and out of the classroom. Nadine Davis has joined Wiley and we are excited about having another adult committed to helping our students read with greater understanding and depth. We have also gained Lisa Loveland from Gearity to assist with 6th graders in the approaching group. Looking at the needs of students, we have placed Gerardo Castillo back in 6th grade mathematics and placed Damion Creel in 7th grade. We are sure that these instructional changes will benefit our students and help them achieve their goals.
As always, I thank you for entrusting your child’s education to us and having the faith that we will always put kids first.
Dr. Octavia A. Reid
