Targeted Services for grades 2-8

  • The goal of targeted services is to improve teaching and learning and to enable participants to meet the challenging State performance standards that all children are expected to master. To accomplish this goal, a targeted assistance instructional strategy gives primary consideration to extended-time strategies, provides accelerated, high-quality curricula, and minimizes removing children from the regular classroom during regular school hours; coordinates with and supports the regular education program; provides instruction by highly-qualified and trained professional staff; and implements strategies to increase parental involvement.
