Star Assessments measure student growth over time to help educators tailor instruction and increase student academic achievement. Students are assessed three times throughout the school year to monitor progress and modify individualized instructional plans.

All of us feel lonely at times. Loneliness can have a serious effect on your health so it is important to be able to recognize signs that you are feeling this way. It is also important to understand that being alone isn't the same as being lonely. If loneliness is affecting your well-being, there are things you can do to help you form new connections and find the social contact/support that you need.
Stress & Anxiety
Life can be stressful and anxiety provoking. You may be stressed about performance at school, too many responsibilities, relationships, traumatic events, or a life change.
