Differentiated Academic Programs

Accelerated Reader -  AR is an independent reading program that is designed to promote a students love of reading.  Students read books at their appropriate level, take computer-based comprehension tests, and receive points based on their performance.   

 Read Naturally - RN is a Title I Reading Program focusing on researched based strategies to assist students with reading fluency.  Participating students work with highly trained teacher's assistants for 40 minutes a day.

Special Education Co-teaching/Inclusion Model - Students who receive additional support through an Individual Education Plan (IEP) are supported using a combination of services that include both small group intervention outside of their classroom as well as support within the general education classroom.  Co-teaching teams, which provide support from both a general education teacher and a special education provider, are setup at each grade level

Reading Rewards - RR is a Title I reading program geared specifically at our 4th grade students who are struggling with phonics and phonemic awareness.  Participating students work with highly trained teacher's assistants for 40 minutes a day.

Daily Intervention Blocks - A 40 minute "Intervention Block" has been established for each classroom at each grade level.  During this 40 minute block, students receive intervention to assist with either re-teaching a concept that they need additional support with or enriching in an area that they have already displayed mastery.
