Central Elementary students and staff worked hard throughout the summer to recover from the learning loss during the COVID-19 pandemic. Literacy camps were held for four weeks throughout the summer where students received intensive direct instruction in the morning and hands-on enrichment learning in the afternoons through partnerships with the Coosa County Extension Office and Poplar Point Camp.
Students took an iReady diagnostic assessment at the conclusion of the camp. When compared to their Spring iReady diagnostic national percentile averages for kindergarten students increased by 19%, first graders increased by 7%, and second and third graders both increased by 4%. To continue improvements in literacy Central Elementary has reinvigorated their Accelerated Reader (AR) program. Students earn points by reading books based on their reading level and then take tests to measure their reading comprehension. Every nine weeks students get to go to the AR store to buy stuff with the AR points they earned.
