Parenting Education Facilitators work to ensure that families stay involved with student curriculum and strengthen the partnership between the home and school.
The Plus One Program adds one hour to each school day, providing teachers and students more instructional time. It does not add additional curriculum, but rather gives teachers and students more time to cover the elementary curriculum. Extra time allows teachers to cover the curriculum in more depth and provides students with greater opportunities to master skills and concepts.
SmartStart brings individualized instruction to the preschool level in a developmentally appropriate way and blends it with research-based center learning. It is a multimodal resource for teaching age-appropriate reading, math and science concepts in classrooms. The instructional strands include Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Executive Function, and Cognition.
Tutoring instruction focuses on the core subjects of reading and math. The tutoring groups are small: 1 teacher to a maximum of 8 students. Tutors plan instruction according to the student's need and monitor their progress regularly. Tutors will also communicate regularly with the student's classroom teacher and parents. Letters inviting students to the tutoring program are sent to parents of students in greatest need of extra help. For more specific information, please contact your school.
