CURRENT SECTION: D

DYNAMIC INDICATORS OF BASIC EARLY LITERACY SKILLS (DIBELS)
The Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) are simple assessments given to students in kindergarten through third grade which measure the critical skills that predict early reading success. A trained team of assessors at each school administers DIBELS Benchmark Assessments to all K-3 students, three times a year. Students experiencing reading difficulties are provided interventions to address the specific skills identified. Monitoring is conducted every three weeks to assess progress made on the specific skill.

DISCIPLINE-BASED ARTS EDUCATION ( DBAE)/COMPREHENSIVE ARTS
DBAE is a process approach to instruction and learning in the arts in St. Tammany Parish public schools. Staff development is available to teachers and arts specialists as they enable students to experience works of art in four ways: history, criticism, aesthetics, and production. The approach encourages intellectual development, cognitive and higher-order thinking skills, creative problem solving, cross cultural understanding, self-esteem, and patience. DBAE is also a natural avenue for linking other disciplines.
