The Options Program offers an alternative approach to elementary education that is a choice for students who live in the Lincoln service area and Olympia School District. The program provides a developmental approach to education.  Attributes of the Options Program include:


  • Social-emotional growth and academic growth are equally valued
  • Children stay with the same teacher in multi-age classrooms for two years or more to support their learning and strengthen the family-school relationship
  • Learning is integrated through project based learning
  • Multiple intelligences, cooperation, social justice and sustainability are taught and practiced
  • Parents are vital to sustaining the Options Program and are involved in governance, as partners supporting learning in the classroom, enrichment activities, field trips, fundraising and social events

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge.


What is the Rasch UnIT (RIT) scale?

When students finish their MAP Growth test, they receive a number called an RIT score for each area they are tested in (reading, language usage, math, or science). This score represents a student’s achievement level at any given moment and helps measure their academic growth over time. The RIT scale is a stable scale, like feet and inches, that accurately measures student performance, regardless of age, grades, or grade level. Like marking height on a growth chart, and being able to see how tall your child is at various points in time, you can also see how much they have grown between tests.

The higher the RIT score, the more achievement the student has in the subject. The student's percentile ranking and conditional growth percentile can show how much the student has achieved in comparison with their peers. You can also refer to the Comparative Data to Inform Instructional Decisions to understand how students are performing relative to other students in the same grade level according to our national norms.
