Early Intervention(EIP):  Children come to school at different stages of development and do not all learn at the same rate or with the same method of teaching.  Because of their differences, most children learn best when they are in small groups and have access to materials and activities which are adjusted to their pace and style of learning. Children qualify for services based on multiple academic evaluations. If a child qualifies for EIP services a certified teacher works in collaboration with the regular classroom teacher to provide small group instruction based on the needs of each student, thus reducing the student/teacher ratio and ensuring more support for every child in the classroom.

ESOL/ELL:  The ESOL program is designed to support language acquisition for students who qualify for services.  Students are served in small-group setting, using several different service models, depending on student needs.  The ESOL standards are addressed through academic content.
