The Learning Assistance Program (LAP) is a state funded program that provides additional support to eligible students. LAP funds are used to support students performing below grade level in grades K-4 in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics, 11th and 12th grade students at risk for not graduating, and behavioral interventions for students to address gaps in their learning.
Tacoma Public Schools supports a school wide Title I and LAP program in identified schools designed to ensure that students with learning needs can learn and grow to meet grade level standards. Our goal, in the Title I / LAP office is to partner with schools to support, inform and update them on new federal laws, requirements and to provide support to meet the goals of their continuous achievement plans (CAP).
Further support is provided to Title 1/ LAP identified schools by allocating a designated Tile I / LAP program specialist who works with building principals and Title I and LAP teachers at schools, to support the goals of their CAP (continuous achievement process and plan). Specifically, the program specialist's responsibilities include:
Every school, as a part of their district Partnership goal has a parent involvement goal. It is their responsibility to promote parent and family engagement within their Title I, Part A programs. Planned activities include:
Parents can influence the success of their student in school more than any teacher or federal program. Research shows that how well students do in school depends a great deal upon how much their parents get involved in their education. The Title I program supports our schools Parent Involvement activities to expand on Parent Involvement.
Complaints related to federal programs are processed through the State of Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. In our Family Resources page, you will find information that will assist with the citizen complaint process.
As of October 1, 2017, a total of 505 classroom teachers and principals were provided training in the Intervention Framework model. The core Intervention Framework team, which consisted of staff members from C & I, EL, SPED, and Title 1/LAP, have followed up with all participants sharing best practices to address the learning needs of every child that they serve.
Superintendent Santorno, along with Cabinet members have been introduced to the framework through a training session and provided with actual resource materials. Cabinet members and Tacoma Public Schools Trustee members have been given frequent updates and outcomes as teachers utilize the Intervention Framework resources.
Elementary Principals have been surveyed to provide feedback on how the Intervention Framework is being implemented in their buildings. As a team, we will be examining the impact of implementing the Intervention Framework.
