The intervention program at FLT was created in 2014 to provide academic support for our struggling, advanced, and gifted scholars. We have five part-time interventionists that service the scholars who struggle in grades 1 through 5 and one full-time lead interventionist that services the Gifted and Advanced Learners (GAL) in K through 5. The paraprofessionals and small group tutors in each classroom also provide support for students that are struggling or need to be pushed further.
Scholars who struggle are pulled out of their regular classroom for thirty minutes each day for support in reading using
SPIRE or math using skill-based practice. Scholars are identified for intervention based upon their performance on the baseline assessments given at the beginning of the school year. Scholars with the greatest need are placed in intervention groups. However, due to the limited number of spots and the intense nature of the intervention programs, scholars with poor attendance are not considered for participation in the intervention program. Scholars will be added to the intervention program throughout the year if space allows using classroom performance and assessment data. Parents that have concerns about their scholar's progress should first contact their scholar's teacher, and then request a Student Support Team (SST) meeting.
