Provide Background Details and Rationale: To address our growing number of classrooms and update resources appropriately, it is recommended to approve new Fountas and Pinnell (F&P) assessment kits. These kits provide teachers with assessment resources needed to conduct reading assessment via a running record and comprehension benchmarks. This is not a new resource in the Park Hill School District and will help continue the work of elementary teachers in the area of reading, decoding, and comprehension. This benchmarking assessment kit allows teachers to administer universal screening assessments and provides classroom teachers and reading interventionists valuable data to assign text, provide intervention, and support students at their instructional level. F&P kits also serve as a progress monitoring tool for teachers to track growth of a student’s instructional and independent reading levels over time.
Provide Funding Source and Estimated Cost: $31,025 from the resource budget
