At Pigeon River, an extra layer of support is provided to students that show a need in the academic area of reading as well as math. Three times a year students are screened to determine if they are on target to reach their academic learning goals for the school year. If it is found that a student needs additional support, they will join one of the staff Interventionists. Interventionists use best practices along with research-based materials to help their students close their learning gaps. Working with an Interventionist provides an additional layer of academic support in addition to good common core classroom instruction. An Interventionist also works with students that have been identified as needing enrichment in reading or math.
