Strategies to address school needs

 

Provide opportunities for all children, including subgroups of students, to meet the challenging Missouri Learning Standards.

 

Description of how strategies will be provided

The district provides a variety of opportunities for student success.  Our preschool program is available at two district buildings.  This program provides services to 46 at-risk students.  We are staffed with 3 certified teachers and 3 paraprofessionals.  This program prepares students for kindergarten.  The preschool program identifies weaknesses and learning gaps for these disadvantaged students.  Instructional strategies and methods are used so these students may begin entry level kindergarten on an equal education level.  The district also incorporates Reading Plus, pull out/push in program for mathematics and ELA, Parents As Teachers meetings, screenings, and home visits with parents, before and after school tutoring, Saturday school, advisory/seminar periods each day at the junior high and high school level, etc.

Use methods and instructional strategies that strengthen the academic program in the school.

 

Description of how strategies will strengthen…

Teachers and paraprofessionals work together to provide small group instruction, individual instruction, and classroom peer tutoring according to student needs and the requirements of common assessments.  Instructional activities are used in accordance with the district curriculum and the Missouri Learning Standards.  These methods allow students to succeed and continue on their educational learning path.

Help provide an enriched and accelerated curriculum.

Address the needs of all children in the school, but particularly the needs of those at risk of not meeting the Missouri Learning Standards.
