HELPING STUDENTS ACHIEVE ACADEMIC SUCCESS
Title I provides services to students who may need extra help in reading and/or math. Placement is based on classroom teacher recommendations, student performance on NWEA, MCA (Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment) tests and on-going classroom assessment. Academic goals are created for each student in the program. When these goals are achieved or they have reached proficiency on the assessments, the student is dismissed from the Title I program.
EL teachers provide students with small-group attention based on their proficiency level and specific language areas. Though instruction does not occur in the mainstream classroom, the EL teacher(s) support classroom instruction by teaching the same skills aligned to the core curriculum.
The American Indian Education Program works to provide Native students opportunities to culture, language and student advocacy through 1:1 support, family engagement and educational networks. Our goal is to improve American Indian Student achievement and graduation rates.
