Ludlow District and Curriculum
Ludlow Public Schools contain five schools and just over 3,000 students. Ludlow Public Schools use assessments for students besides the state standardized assessment. The Fountas & Pintell Benchmark Assessment System (BAS) is given on a twice yearly basis to establish reading levels—both independent, which means the student can read the book with 95 to 99% accuracy and with satisfactory comprehension and the instructional level, which is the ideal classroom reading level and means that the student needs a bit of help with the book but can read it with 90 to 94% accuracy.
We currently cover the following Ludlow-area school district: Ludlow Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ludlow District Curriculum
In addition, the district utilizes the Scholastic Reading and Math Inventories (SRI and SMI) to help inform instruction in these content areas. SRI and SMI are non-timed, computer-based assessments that are given three times a year to students in grades 2 to 8. Each inventory contains about 20 to 30 questions that conform to the Common Core Standards, with each assessment adjusting to the academic level of the student.
Each student’s results show a Lexile Score indicating his/her reading level on a specific scale and a Quantile Score, portraying his/her academic readiness in math. Teachers will receive detailed results of these assessments, so they will be able to determine students’ specific strengths and weaknesses in these content areas and differentiate instruction appropriately. This assessment—along with the knowledge of students’ reading levels—is important because it allows teachers to determine placement of students in groups and in creating assignments.

Chalk Talk: Supporting Innovative Teaching
One of the many attributes that schools look for in their teaching staff is the ability to be innovative. Teachers should show innovation (using technology is a plus!) and have students engaged in interactive group activities. Having assignments that allow the topic being taught to take on a new life and meaning for each student is also important. Of course, teachers know that no lesson plan ever turns out perfectly (as originally planned), so it is important to listen to constructive criticism from observers. The key is to improve instruction by incorporating feedback while still staying true to oneself as a teacher so that it’s still natural for the students. Administrators and parents are on the teacher’s side and are only trying to help that individual succeed, with the goal of ensuring that all students in the class also succeed.
