Research-Based Academic Intervention
With the goal of helping every student to succeed, HISD’s Research-Based Academic Intervention Program identifies students of all ages who are facing academic challenges and introduces educational strategies that improve student learning.
HISD focuses on providing students with a safe and nurturing environment that meets them right where they are. Children are praised for not only accomplishment, but for effort as well.
HISD provides classroom teachers with screening tools to identify children who need assistance. Information is gathered through observation, interview, review of school records, and informal assessment. HISD also works alongside teachers to develop effective interventions and provides tools to monitor progress.
Parents with concerns about their child’s academic achievement are invited to talk with classroom teachers. Teachers and parents working together often can establish informal strategies that address issues.
