Christ Our Savior Catholic School has a local intervention team which helps to assist those students struggling academically as well as students with behavioral concerns. Our team consists of the Principal, Counselor, Reading Specialist (as leader), and a teacher from each department: Primary, Intermediate and Junior High.
A student is referred to the Intervention Team by the homeroom teacher after a student has demonstrated an ongoing academic need. A meeting is then arranged with the parents. The team works cooperatively with the parents, teacher and student to insure that the child is receiving an optimal educational experience. Through the use of accommodations and modifications, the academic program is monitored so that the student achieves success.
Marzano’s Formative Assessment & Standards-Based Grading
The benefits of Marzano’s Formative Assessment & Standards-Based Grading are that it is used while instruction is occurring rather than at the end of a course. Formative assessments track student progress, and how to assign meaningful grades, even if a school or district continues to use a traditional grading system.
Bloom’s Taxonomy increases retention of subject matter and helps students eliminate the abstraction of core concepts through hands-on project-based learning activities that utilize real world approaches.
