i-Ready is a supplemental program that provides students individualized math and reading online lessons designed to their specific needs. It is one of the tools DPSCD has implemented to help students bridge academic gaps and reach the ultimate goal of every student performing at grade level or higher. Students use their one-to-one devices during school to work on their need specific lessons. However, students are encouraged to work on their i-Ready lessons at home for additional practice when possible. Studentse take three i-Ready tests: Beginning of the Year in September; Middle of the Year in January; and End of the Year in June. The goal is for every student to reach grade level skills or beyond by end the year.
