Del Mar Academy
We are opening as a P-6 for the inaugural 2023-24 school year. We will add 7th grade in the 2024-25 school year and 8th grade in 2025-26 school year.
We Are ASSESSMENT-DRIVEN
We use assessment to find out if our teaching was effective and to make adjustments to the lessons:
Formative Assessment: We use daily assessments to make adjustments to the instruction in the moment. Our teachers meet weekly with other teachers to compare these daily assessments to ensure the alignment and quality of the grade level instruction meets the standard.
Interim Assessment: We use a quarterly assessment to make adjustments to our instruction as a school. This assessment is called iReady.
We Communicate STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
Preschool and Kindergarten: We use an assessment tool called TS GOLD to measure developmental progressions. Families will receive a report about their child three times a year in November, February and May. Individual reports will be in paper-form and distributed to families.
First through 8th Grades: We use a district-created report card that measures student proficiency and effort. Families will receive a report four times a year in October, December, March and May. Grades will be posted in Infinite Campus.
