School uses new tactic to help students
Some of the area’s poorest students attend the school, but teachers and administrators there aren’t using that as an excuse to accept below-average performance. Instead, they’re taking different approaches to reach the students and help them succeed.
Thanks to the numeracy grant, RES has added several new staff members, including a numeracy coach, who provides professional development for teachers and helps them use researched-based instruction in their math classes.
In addition, Principal Sonja Walker has purchased software designed to identify specific student weaknesses in math.
