Queen of Angels Catholic School acknowledges the unique learning styles and challenges that students can face while in elementary school. Academic Support is based on benchmark assessments, classroom performance, observations, and other progress monitoring data to determine the learning needs of students. Resource teachers at each pod level work with small groups of students to strengthen skills and promote success in the classroom. Collaboration occurs between and among classroom teachers, parents, and the Student Success Team (SST).
Students in need of academic support are referred by their teacher to the SST that is composed of the resource teachers, the principal, and guidance counselor. Discussion and collaboration with the classroom teacher occurs to develop strategies as well as opportunities for additional practice and review of skills. Instructional intervention such as small group ‘flex-times’ with the pod level resource teacher may also occur within the regular classroom setting or pod area.
Often more consistent support is needed at home and is available to parents through:
- Daily agenda checks
- Daily visits on Google Classroom to view the test and quiz calendar
- Weekly review of grades/assignments in the RenWeb Grade Book
- Weekly review of student's work in Thursday's folder
- Supervision of homework completion and test preparation
Progress monitoring is ongoing, and teachers differentiate instruction providing strategies as needed. Please refer to the Student-Family Handbook for more detailed information.
