Jefferson Elementary School staff use a variety of strategies and interventions when teaching students. These pieces help all students work toward academic and personal success.
At Jefferson, teachers have received training in the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System. We use this tool to help identify each individual student's strengths, weaknesses and needs in reading. We then use this information to develop appropriate instruction.
PBIS is an acronym for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. The goal of PBIS is to promote and teach appropriate pro-social skills and behaviors to maximize academic success for all students.
