Easy CBM Easy CBM is a universal screening assessment that is administered to all Kindergarten through 5th grade students in Collierville Schools. The assessment is given three times a year to identify areas of need for students in the areas of reading and math. If an area of need is identified, students will receive targeted intervention lessons in the specific areas of need during “Tiger Time". Tiger Time is a daily 45 minute time slot set aside in our schedule to allow every student to receive either remediation/enrichment/special education services, etc. without loosing valuable instructional time. This is our third year to use this program and we have been most pleased with the results.
Tiger Time • Every child will go to Tiger Time from 1-2 pm daily • Some children will receive enrichment, while others receive extra help when/if they need it • Lindsey Heritage: Interventionist
