Those students that fall below the 25th percentile are placed in our intervention groups.  Mrs. Flanigan monitors the progress of students using the STAR assessment tools. Intervention groups are formed to assist those children. Small group instruction supplements classroom teachers instruction in the student’s areas of weakness.
