How We Ensure Educational Equity:

"Content Enhancement" and "Thoughtful Classroom" strategies are examples of the many research based practices utilized in every content area and at every grade level. Each school has implemented a Response to Intervention Plan which targets specific instructional support for struggling students and have revamped their daily schedules in order to do this during the school day as well as after school activities. Finally, all schools use collaboration strategies and educationsl software to ensure each student is provided access to the general curriculum. These strategies, techniques, and software programs benefit ALL students.
