We Educate the Whole Child
Academic and behavior intervention services support the instructional, social and emotional needs of all students so they can feel safe and thrive.
Interventions Support Learning
Academic Interventions at School
The most important element to providing instruction to meet the needs of all learners is the focus on high quality first instruction in the traditional classroom.
The Governing Board has adopted state standards of proficiency in reading comprehension, writing and computational skills and in other appropriate areas. Students are assessed for these basic skills and receive interventions when needed.
When it becomes necessary to supplement the instructional practices for struggling students we provide academic interventions in various ways. Following are some, but not all, of the interventions that may be provided:
- Use of a strategic student study team to identify student strengths and weaknesses
- Targeted small group instruction with students of similar abilities
- Targeted iReady Instructional Lessons
- Time with Reading Intervention Teacher
- Before or after school additional support
- Work with Student Support Coaches or Instructional Aides
- Saturday Intervention Classes
- Summer School
Behavioral Interventions at School
Intervention strategies reflect the Board's preference for the use of positive interventions and alternative disciplinary measures over exclusionary discipline measures as a means for correcting student misbehavior. Counselors work in conjunction with the Administrator and staff to develop, implement, and monitor tiered interventions for students.
The following list provides examples of the interventions that may be provided:
- Check in Check Out
- Social Skills Group
- Visual Schedule
- Class meetings
- Verbal prompts and re-corrections
- Sensory tools
- Preferential Seating
- Behavior Support Plan
- Individual counseling
- Self management strategies
- Quiet work area
- Buddy Teacher
- Acknowledgement programs
Student Success Team
The SST process is a general education function designed to address the social, emotional and academic needs of all students. The classroom teacher and/or another staff member can refer students for an SST meeting.
Through a leveled process, the classroom teacher, parents, other staff members and site administrator(s) create an action plan based on the student’s strengths and challenges.
The plan identifies strategies and interventions that will best address the student’s needs. In addition, the action plan includes input and participation by the parent, the classroom teacher and all appropriate staff members who have knowledge of the student and their work.
Once completed, we implement the plan immediately.
* Additional academic and behavioral interventions may be available at the child’s school site. Contact the school principal for details.
Our Support Team
Our Community Liaisons help families connect to school and community resources that support the child’s well being, and they engage with parents to promote active involvement in the child’s school success through the crisis and beyond. Partnerships with local service agencies augment the support we are able to offer students and families. If your child needs additional support, please contact your school’s Community Liaison or our School Linked Services Coordinator.
