Intervention is a district-wide approach to helping students who may need some extra academic support. Interventionists are certified teachers who specialize in bridging skill gaps for students, allowing them to find more success in the general classroom through targeted practice.
Intervention is a part of general education, not special education. When a student does not show progress through the intervention program, teachers and family members will discuss next steps, which may include a referral to the SPED department. Intervention is a great way to rule out what may or may not be affecting a child’s academic achievement. More often than not, intervention students just need extra practice in a small group.
The intervention team at Steele is comprised of highly qualified educators.
