Learning Assistance Program

The district will implement a learning assistance program designed to enhance educational opportunities for students enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade who do not meet state English language arts or mathematics standards by providing supplemental instruction and services to those students. 

Selection of Students

Students participating in the district’s learning assistance program will be limited to students who:

  1. Score below standard for his or her grade level using multiple measures of performance, which may include the statewide student assessments or other assessments and performance measurement tools administered by the school or district;
  2. Are in grades 11 or 12 and are not on track to meet state or local graduation requirements;
  3. Are identified in eighth grade in need of high school transition services, which may continue through the end of ninth grade; or
  4. Are identified by the district as being significantly at-risk of not being successful in school and to be served under the district’s readiness to learn program.

Best Practices

The district will use best practices to provide learning assistance program services to participating students. The district will select practices and strategies in accordance with WAC 392-162-041.

Coordination with Other Programs

The district may coordinate federal, state and local programs to serve the maximum number of students who are below grade level in basic skills. Students receiving assistance in another special needs program may also be served in the learning assistance program, if they meet student eligibility and selection requirements.

Annual Report to OSPI

The district will submit an annual report to the superintendent of public instruction detailing:

  1. The amount of academic growth gained by students participating in the learning assistance program;
  2. The number of students who gain at least one year of academic growth;
  3. The specific practices, activities and programs used by each school that received learning assistance funds; and
  4. The number of students served by the learning assistance program during the school year who were able to exit the program because student academic growth resulted in meeting the academic standard for grade level.
