Circle Progress Monitoring

Throughout the school year, students in your child’s prekindergarten classroom are being given special activities to help their teacher track their progress. The teacher looks at the results of this “progress monitoring” to determine if the children are developing the skills they will need for kindergarten and their later school years. The CIRCLE Progress Monitoring tool helps your child’s teacher identify learning areas in which your child is developing a level of understanding that is expected for his or her age. The tool also identifies areas in which your child might need more targeted support and practice. If your child is meeting or exceeding the expectation for his or her age, the teacher will offer additional supports to help your child progress further. If your child needs targeted support for a particular skill, then the teacher might use a variety of different teaching strategies to support that area of development.
