For students at risk of academic failure, our school seeks to provide a prevention/intervention system that promotessuccessful completion and mastery of work. Details of our plan are below.The following are school-wide expectations for how we support prevention-intervention efforts:
- BOY data will be evaluated to determine student needs: mClass Data, summative assessments, teacherobservations, report card grades, retention, special services, benchmark assessments, EOGs, PEPs from the previous year, etc…
- Once we have looked at all of our student data, including teacher observations a meeting will be held bygrade levels, ESL, administration, CCR, interventionists and all other stake holders to determine whatservices/best practices will effectively meet the students' needs.
- Students identified as needing intervention will be discussed and documented monthly during PLTs toensure all students not achieving at benchmark are reviewed and the target learning focus is updatedand/or modified.
- Each quarter student data will be reviewed to monitor student performance and to make adjustments toservices as needed.
- New students arriving throughout the school year who demonstrate a need as evidenced by the aboveassessments will be discussed at monthly PLTs and documented on PLT minutes template.
- Students will exit intervention when the benchmark is achieved and/or adequate progress has beendocumented.
- Monthly or Bi-monthly collaboration meetings will also take place with Intervention, Instructional Support and Classroom teachers to discuss and monitor students’ current performance levels.
- PEPs, Tier II and III plans are adhered to and followed communicating concerns and progress to parents.
The following are grade/subject specific expectations for prevention and intervention:
- Collaboration with Instructional Support staff, one on one teaching, and small group and strategy groupsare consistently used across the grade level to help meet the needs of all students.
- Students who are at risk are progress monitored based on the intervention stated in the child'sIEP/PEP. Teachers work together to develop strategies to improve the area of risk.
- Assessments, classwork, and observations will be used to identify target areas for small group instruction.
- The students will be grouped by levels for literacy and math instruction.
- Instructional support teachers and instructional assistants assist with providing classroom interventions tostudents who are not meeting grade level expectations.
