Read By Third Grade Task Force

Based on Public Law 306 (October 2016), third grade students who are more than a year below grade level on the state ELA assessment are under consideration for retention in third grade. Dearborn Public Schools staff in elementary schools have been systematically planning to ensure that teachers have the training to teach reading effectively and that students receive small group instruction based on their needs. The current year second graders are the first group to potentially be impacted by the legislation.

You are invited to join the district task force to strengthen the planning process and to ensure that the community is informed and engaged in the success of every student.  The first meeting will be January 10, 2019 from 4-5:30pm at the ASC building (Administrative Service Center, 18700 Audette, Dearborn, 48124).

Get a “Clue” at EFHS

Edsel Ford students presented a version of the historic game Clue as their fall production. Directed by Robert Doyle, the cast of characters did a “theatre in the round.”  All students did an outstanding job with staying in character and knowing their lines. Nathan Wall as butler Wadsworth was especially compelling.

Instructional Coaches

ICs met on 11.6.18 and spent the morning focusing on coaching strategies to improve planning, data analysis, coteaching and reflecting.  The afternoon was dedicated to Essential Instructional Practices, data analysis and the Read By Third Grade law.  Coaches are partners for teachers in their PLC and the goal is to strengthen practice in literacy to improve student outcomes.

Building team is important to collaborative work.  An inclusion activity starts the day of learning

PD for Early Childhood Specialists

A day of learning for Dearborn staff on 11.6.18.  ECS gathered to focus on data analysis of their kinder students and teamed to do a case study on one of their students.  ECS also focused on Struggling Readers-a text in the LLI kit-and spent time analyzing how to use student performance (running records) and progress monitoring to determine next steps for instructional planning.  A joyous yet tiring day.
