Early Intervention Program
Children start school at a designated chronological age, but differ greatly in their intellectual development and experience base. The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is designed to serve students who are at risk of not reaching or maintaining academic grade level. We have three EIP teachers at Van Wert Elementary: myself, Connie McGinnis and Fran Smith. The purpose of the Early Intervention Program is to provide additional instructional resources to help students who are performing below grade level obtain the necessary academic skills to reach grade level performance in the shortest possible time. We all work along with your child's homeroom teacher to help your child reach his or her greatest potential!
