Program Description: There are a number of different academic programs within our building that we provide to support our struggling students. This year we will be implementing an Academic Assistance Program that will be offered during lunch. Once a student’s team identifies a child that is in need of more individualized support, he or she will receive an invitation to our program. This invitation will provide the student with an opportunity to receive remediation and small group tutoring in all academic areas. Mrs. Hulse will notify the parent that their child will be beginning the Academic Assistance Program. 1 st Invitation – 1 week of program assistance 2 nd Invitation- 2 weeks of program assistance 3 rd Invitation – 3 weeks of program assistance After 3 invitations have been given out a team meeting with the parents will be set up.
