About the Ready School Assessment
Ready schools do all that is necessary to assure the success of every child. A ready school helps each child achieve grade-level proficiencies across all areas of the curriculum: academic, social-emotional, and physical learning and development.
Children enter school with a diversity of strengths and backgrounds. The ready school accommodates this diversity and provides each child with the instruction and supports that he or she needs to learn effectively and to attain proficiency. Ready schools also help children succeed through collaborative efforts that reach beyond the school walls.
Schools that are concerned about their readiness for all children go beyond
the child’s readiness to learn (the chief focus of readiness
discussion to date) and deal with the issues they influence that
affect success in school — issues that begin well
before the child enters school and that impact the child as he/she enters
and progresses through the early elementary years.
