Daily Reading:
Grades K-2: Should read or be read to for at least 20 minutes every night.
Grades 3-8: Should read for at least 30 minutes every night.

This frees up brain power, enabling students to focus on problem-solving and reasoning.

Grades 5-8: Practice math skills on iXL, an online program, for 15 minutes each night.
*Score a Smart Score of 80 or higher on 2 assigned skills each week.

*Students should use scratch paper to show their problem-solving.

Compass Community Schools is a model Tennessee should follow

Nov, 2, 2022|Categories: Education, Family Resources, Learning Resources, news and information, Uncategorized|

This is especially true for students who are English Language Learners (ELL). These students scored 15 points lower than the state average in English Language Arts and 10 points lower in Math.

As our state looks for solutions to the inequities that create these achievement gaps, we can learn much from the model that’s currently serving Memphis students at Compass Community Schools.>>>>>Read More>>>>>>>>
