What is EIP?
Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a support program that serves students who are not reaching or maintaining grade level standards in the area(s) of Math or Reading. EIP provides additional resources to aid students in obtaining the necessary academic skills in order to reach grade level performance in the shortest time possible.
EIP is NOT... Special Education.
EIP services do NOT carry over from year to year. Unlike Special Education or Horizons, students are not automatically in the program each year.
EIP is NOT a permanent class. Students will exit the program as academic success is reached.
EIP does NOT take the place of regular classroom instruction. It is offered in addition to regular classroom Reading and/or Math instruction.
EIP teachers do NOT give grades to students. Students remain in classes for content classes and exit for additional support after classroom instruction is provided.
