Targeted Support
Simon, Gabe
Leadership, v40 n3 p36-38 Jan-Feb 2011
Heritage Oak Elementary School (Placer County, CA) has continuously achieved a high level of academic success as measured by the California Standards Test. However, after examining student testing data in depth, staff discovered a large achievement gap between the overall school population, socio-economically disadvantaged students, and students with disabilities. In maintaining the fidelity to Heritage Oak's mission for engaging all students in meaningful learning and achieving academic success, the staff adopted a Levels of Support model. The model brings students at this school targeted interventions and school connectedness support, based on individual need. Not only does the Levels of Support model fuel outstanding academic success, it also provides a flexible network of resources that teachers can use to address the academic and social needs of all future students.
