OTHER REQUIRED ELEMENTS OF THE SIP

List and briefly describe, as appropriate, how the school has incorporated activities of intervention such as tutoring before school, after school,
within the school day or any extension of the school year:

Advisement Interventions: 9th and 10th grade students are scheduled into 4 skinny advisements (45 minutes each) that prioritize time with core
area teachers and LOTE. This time is for additional Tier 1 instruction and initial Tier 2 interventions.
Common Planning – Most PLC Teams have common planning time for intervention discussions, collaborative planning and professional
dialogue as needed and desired
Recovery Center – see building and district models
Learning Center – see building and district models
Twilight Academy – see building and district models
Reading Center Intervention – small group pull out to target low level reading skills
Mandatory AIS – mandatory academic intervention for 9th and 10 graders during advisement that is more intensive and directed that targets skill
deficit students in each core area

Describe the support needed to achieve overall plans (what do you need from the District to carry out your goals?)
    On going support and training in the areas of PLC, RtI, PBIS, Olweus, FFS and APPR.
    Time to do the work
    Consistency to deeply imbed this work over time (multiple years on the same focus)
    Starbucks Coffee franchise in the school
