Ridgeline Academy will provide every opportunity along with Identifying gaps in student academics and provide intervention opportunities with research-based programs and evidence-based strategies to address lost instructional time, especially for students most impacted by the pandemic including students from low-income families, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students. Through our summer school program, we will ensure that all interventions we implement address the academic impact of lost instructional time and learning loss by using our research based programs; EnVision Math and Reading Street. We will monitor the effectiveness of our tutoring interventions through benchmark testing, both formative and summative assessments, teacher input and regular PLC data review meetings. Baseline data is collected and evaluated to assess instructional needs of students and to provide specific intervention strategies to reduce impact of lost instructional time. Student attendance and review of grades will also be used to monitor academic progress.
Ridgeline Academy will respond to the social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students, and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including students from low-income families, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students. We will utilize our social worker to address the issues the pandemic has caused by helping students, families, and teachers address problems such as truancy, social withdrawal, overaggressive behaviors, rebelliousness, and the effects of special physical, emotional, and economic problems.
Parent and guardian involvement is critical to the overall success of our academic and SEL interventions and all applicable faculty, including administration, teachers, nurse and social worker will be involved and in regular contact with the student's parent/guardian.
