Readiness Assessment


Beginning in 2019-20, all incoming kindergartners will take a BRIGANCE readiness assessment. The assessment looks at each child’s physical, language, cognitive and social-emotional development as well as self-help skills and determines the child’s school readiness. Results will be shared with the child’s parents before the start of the school year.
