Good afternoon Families,
The spring DESSA social emotional screener administration window begins on May 3. This is the second administration of the SEL screener for our students in grades K-8. The DESSA asks questions about areas of social-emotional functioning including decision making, relationship building, confidence, and others. This will be completed by your child’s teacher. The results of this screener will not be included on report cards, will not have any impact on grades, and will not be used to make any diagnostic or evaluation decisions.
If you would not like your child to par take in this screener you may email their teacher opting out.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
