SCCS Reteach & Enrich Initiative
The goal of the Reteach & Enrich initiative is to provide K-6 students the opportunity to master essential skills and knowledge before moving on to the next level. On a daily basis, teachers will meet with students who are struggling with a concept to provide additional time and attention, while students who have already demonstrated mastery of the skills will be provided the opportunity to explore the curriculum at a deeper level.
The initiative is based upon clearly articulated curricular objectives which are measured on a weekly/bi-weekly basis. Depending on the assessment results, grade-level teams assign students to either a reteach or an enrichment session the following week. As areas of strength and concern vary among students, almost every student will be assigned to both groupings during the course of the year. Students will see the opportunity to focus on their individual needs and to learn a particular concept better than they did the first time.
Collaboration is essential to the success of our students. As the district is piloting a new math curriculum, our initial focus for Reteach & Enrich will be mathematics. During our recent professional development days in June, each K-6 team identified instructional priorities, developed formative assessments, and began planning a range of activities to meet the wide range of academic needs of our students. The assessments will be quite brief and designed to provide a snapshot of each student’s progress so teachers can address any needs promptly. The team will meet on a weekly basis to review the latest results, to identify students who are struggling, and to help plan instruction accordingly.
