    In school you may hear a lot of acronyms and vocabulary that teachers say and you don't know what they mean.  Here are a few that I believe will help you understand a little bit better. Please don't hesitate to stop us and say "I'm sorry, can you explain that to me?"  We often have our own language, and it can be as confusing to us as you :)  About the time we have it down, a term changes!  Please let me know if there is a word you know of that I should include on this list.


    • DRA - Developmental Reading Assessment

    *DRA is the assessment we administer at the Beginning, Middle and End of the school year to see what reading level your child is on.

    • LISDOLA - Lewisville Independent School District Outdoor Learning Area
