How Sirius Helps School Administrators
Sirius Resources Improve Student Performance on the STAAR Tests
Sirius helps principals and campus administrators improve ALL students’ performance on STAAR tests, including moving more students to Meets and Masters Grade Levels.
Sirius Helps Your Campus Achieve Its Accountability Goals
Sirius ensures your campus builds a positive energy of progress while ensuring your autonomy. Your teachers will feel supported and effective with engaged students that are successful.
Sirius does this by helping you better align your taught curriculum with how the TEKS are tested in STAAR 2.0.
For instance, students need to learn vocabulary, concepts, and computation skills for adding and subtracting fractions. But STAAR tests require that students use this knowledge and these skills to solve application word problems—complex cognitive tasks that students can learn with instruction and practice to achieve exactly what they need to do on the test.
Sirius Resources Provide Insights & Documentation of Student Performance and Usage
Sirius resources can help improve your overall school performance and be an important part of your school’s overall performance plan.
The Performance and Usage Reports in Sirius Online not only provide you and your teachers with valuable insights into what students need and how they are performing, these reports can also help you document your Accelerated Instruction efforts related to addressing HB 4545.
Sirius Product Training and Development Support Your Teachers and Staff
Sirius supports your school’s implementation of Sirius resources and programs by providing product training and additional development opportunities to your teachers, instructional coaches, tutors, department heads, APs, and principals.
For schools using Sirius Online, Sirius works collaboratively with your instructional and technical teams to quickly “onboard” your students into the online courses and ensure they address your instructional needs and requirements.
