Academic Support Programming

Woodbury City Public Schools offers three tiers of assistance for at-risk elementary students.

  • Tier 1 - The classroom teacher
  • Tier 2 - In-class Instructional Assistant
  • Tier 3 - Academic Support Teacher

Each kindergarten and first grade class will have an Instructional Assistant. Grades 2-5 will share an Instructional Assistant. Additionally, each building has designated a teacher to provide academic support services for the students most in need.

The Academic Support Teachers will strive to push-in, pre-teach, and then remediate to bolster literacy and math skills.

Identification of Students in Need

The classroom teacher will assess student strengths and areas of need in literacy and math skills. The classroom teacher will work closely with the Instructional Assistant to determine the most effective strategies to remediate students’ perceived weaknesses.

Academic support student lists are created during the months of June, Sept. and January (K) by a review of student performance and test results. However, a teacher or parent can request that a student not currently on this list be considered for support services in the areas of math and/or literacy. This request should then flow from the desk of the building principal to the Academic Support Teacher so that an evaluation of the student can be carried out.

Criteria for selection is based on results of QRI5, literacy and mathematics benchmark tests, standardized tests (grades 3-5), report cards, and teacher recommendations.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to the Supervisor of Elementary Curriculum and Instruction, Thomas Braddock, at 856-853-0125 ext. 142 or [email protected].
