    CHARTER CHARTER CHATTER CHATTER
    School News
     

    Dear Parent/Guardian:
     
    We are excited to let you know that our school will be participating in the Devereux Student Strengths Assessment (DESSA) Program.
    The goal of this program is for teachers and families to identify and enhance a child's social and emotional skills, which are essential to academic achievement. Social skills include things like making and keeping friends, showing respect for others, and resloving disagreements in positive ways. Emotional skills include things like being able to recongnize their own and others' emotions, and showing healthy self-control.
     
    The DESSA is a strength-based behavior rating scale that measures the social and emotional akills that help students do well in school, at home, and in the community. The district will be using the DESSA with children in kindergarten through the eighth grade.
     
    Your child's teacher will complete a DESSA "mini" strength-based assessment both now and again at the end of the school year, based on direct observations of your child's daily inteactions at school. In addition, the teachers may complete a 72 item DESSA to monitor your child's progress throughout the year for some students in the program.
     
    We would also like to better understand the skills that your child is displaying at home. We may ask that at least one parent/guardian to complete the 72 question DESSA assessment as well. Having both the parent and teacher input will provide valuable information about the student both at home and in the classroom. We will use this information to better plan for all students in the program, building on their individual strengths.
     
    The teacher and I will use the DESSA Program to help children be more successful in school. In addition, the teacher/school counselor may share information about activities that you can do at home to build your child's social and emotional skills. We are working to improve your children's education by ensuring it meets their unique needs.
     
    Rest assured, protecting personal information in secure and responsible ways is at the heart of our efforts to provide a richer and more dynamic learning experience for all students.
     
    If you have any questions regarding this program, please feel free to contact me.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Marie L. Fitts
