• FLEX Intervention and Enrichment

    FLEX is a 32 minute period that meets four times per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoon). During this FLEX period, all teachers teach a FLEX course, and all students take either an Intervention or Enrichment course. The dual option of support or enrichment allows students to enter and exit courses based on their academic progress.

    Intervention:  For students who need additional support in ELA, Math, or basic coursework, students are enrolled in an Intervention course of 20 students or fewer.

    • EL Support –Students who have not reclassified through the ELPAC process and who demonstrate a need for skill growth in reading, writing, and speaking English.  
    • PowerMath – Students identified through CAASPP, NWEA, and teacher-recorded data as needing target support with grade-level math concepts. If a student has identified ELA and math areas of need, the student's teaching team will decide on appropriate intervention placement. 
    • Study Skills – Students who qualify for special education services may be placed in a study skills class that encompasses all aspects of academic readiness. This placement is decided by the IEP team.  

     Enrichment:  Students who are not enrolled in an Intervention FLEX may choose from a variety of Enrichment courses.
