At Washington Elementary we strive to meet the needs of all students.  It is our goal to provide great classroom instruction that allows students to meet state standards.  Universal screening is testing that is done at three benchmark periods throughout the year; September, January, and May.  This testing determines which students may be at- risk for not meeting grade level expectations in reading or math.

We use the screening data to select students for additional services. If a student is below 35% on the universal screening, he or she receives additional services.
