Academic Coaching for Educational Success
Using the Response to Intervention (RtI) model, ACES provides small group instruction in reading and/or math. Progress and placements are monitored and evaluated on an ongoing basis. Students are placed in ACES based on Aimsweb results (given 3 times each year), PARCC results (from the spring), class performance (focusing on tests/quizzes), and teacher recommendations.
I believe that all students can achieve at high levels, and we work together in ACES to make it happen!
