The district's robust technology plan initiated a 1:1 Chromebook investment for students in grades 1-8 and continues into the 2018 -19 school year. Teachers have the benefit of being trained in Google Apps for Education by our on-site technology coordinators who are Google-certified teachers/trainers. Our range of instructional programs meet the diverse needs of our student population. The common thread that unifies all of our services and programs is the commitment of this district to assist every student to achieve success, paying particular attention to disparities between subgroups, and to provide early interventions for those students who are at risk of not reaching their full potential. TIP (Targeted Intervention Program) is facilitated through Title I funds for students identified as "at risk for literacy" in grades K-3 through Wilson Fundations, a systematic phonics programs that provide students with a foundation for reading and spelling success. Our SAM (Students Achieving More) G&T program challenges students identified as gifted in grades K-8. In grades K-3, instruction is tiered and differentiated through classroom activities. In grades 4-8 we offer a hybrid instructional plan of high-interest topics and trips designed to enhance and enrich the curriculum. The district has embraced the STEM and Maker Movement by incorporating an emphasis on interdisciplinary lessons grounded in the engineering design process, as well as offering a collaborative Maker Fest each spring to challenge students in grades 5-8 to think deeply about global issues and develop innovative solutions to address these concerns.In December 2018, the district was selected to be a part of Postitive Behavior Support in Schools which is a school-wide, tiered intervention system known as Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
