Children start school at a designated chorological age, but differ greatly in the individual development and experience base. The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is designed to serve students who are at risk of not reaching or maintaining academic grade level. The purpose of the Early Intervention Program is to provide additional instructional resources to help students who are performing below grade level obtain the necessary academic skills to reach grade level performance in the shortest possible time.
EIP teachers go into the classroom and work with the students in cooperation with the homeroom teacher to provide additional instruction and resources. They work in small groups of no more than 19 students per class at one time.
There are times when students are removed from the classroom, by an additional certified teacher for more individualized instruction.
