~ White Township Consolidated School Academic Skills Assistance Program ~
Funding for our Academic Skills Assistance Program is provided through the federal grant, Every Child Succeeds Act.
Our school-wide needs assessment was completed to determine students' eligibility to receive services through our Academic Skills Program for the 2018-2019 school year. Teacher recommendation,school-wide benchmark assessments, as well as PARCC scores are reviewed in order to evaluate students who would benefit from support and instructional intervention.
Our hope is that the Academic Skills Assistance Program will meet each student's individual needs by providing support from either a Academic Skills teacher or paraprofessional in their classroom and/or the opportunity to receive supplemental instruction and intervention in a small group setting. Supplemental instruction is provided in addition to classroom instruction in order to allow students achieve thier personal best.
Our Academic Skills Assistance Program also provides extended after and before school Jump Start Programs as determined by specific grade level needs in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Invitations for the Jump Start Program will be sent out the week of September 18th.
