Prior to the Fresno Unified Board of Education board meeting, district leaders will highlight academic growth and performance on the district’s i-Ready assessments. Board members will speak, along with district leaders. The district has celebrated academics in four ways:

  • Highest growing grade levels in reading and math, kindergarten through eighth grade
  • Highest growing grade levels in each region
  • Top 100 growing students across the district
  • Top performing students

District leaders visited 13 schools on May 25 and 27 for academic growth celebrations. i-Ready Awards Video

i-Ready is the district’s online program for math and reading that helps teachers determine the academic needs of students, personalize their learning and monitor progress throughout the school year. i-Ready is used in grades kindergarten through tenth grade.

“We are thrilled to honor and celebrate the academic growth of our students and the hard work of their teachers. Despite the difficulties of this past year, we have seen our students make tremendous gains throughout the year in reading and math,” said Superintendent Bob Nelson.
