Enrichment & Intervention
ACADEMIC INTERVENTION SERVICES
Students in Grades 3, 4 and 5 have an opportunity to participate in Academic Intervention Services. Students meet in small groups with a teacher either before the regular day or at the end of it to engage in activities to strengthen their academic skills. These classes give students an opportunity to strengthen their skills in a small group setting. For more information, please contact the school office or the classroom teacher.
45-MINUTE ENRICHMENT/INTERVENTION BLOCK
A block of time is built into the daily schedule of every class to allow students to participate in enriching activities and for teachers to address the different needs of students. Some students may work with a reading teacher or other specialist to receive require services. A classroom teacher may provide one-on-one or small group instruction for those in need of some extra attention. A teacher will also utilize this time to challenge others ready for advanced work.
RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION
All K-5th grade students will be screened in reading, literacy and math as part of a proactive and early intervention State-mandated program called Response to Intervention. The goal of RtI is to provide a systematic approach to the early identification of problems in these subjects by classroom teachers who will then respond with tried and tested, research-based instructional strategies. Teachers will monitor progress until students are on track.
Although classroom teachers are responsible for these interventions, a team of professionals that include reading teachers, special education teachers, school psychologists, occupational and physical therapists and speech and language therapists will support teachers and help design, implement and monitor the intervention plan in each school.
