Learning Assistance Program

The Glenwood Heights Primary School Learning Assistance Program ("LAP") advocates and supports a learning partnership comprised of students, teachers, instructional assistants, administrators, and parents working together to provide a rich learning environment for students.  LAP is a state funded program that gives parents the right to be actively involved in decisions regarding their child's education.  LAP encourages parent involvement and invites parent participation through an "open door" policy at all times.


Instructional Goals and Services

Reading:  Any kindergarten through fourth grade student not meeting benchmark criteria in reading as set forth by Battle Ground Public Schools will be eligible for supplemental academic services.  

Math:  Any first through fourth grade student not meeting benchmark criteria in math as set forth by Battle Ground Public Schools will be eligible for supplemental academic services.

Eligible students may receive services during their grade level Reading or Math Small Group Intervention Block.  Goals for all students are reviewed and revised at all regularly scheduled meetings.  In addition, individual student services are monitored by the LAP Facilitator and classroom teachers.   A student’s intervention services may be adjusted at any time based on an agreement of the LAP Facilitator and classroom teacher.


Extended Learning Opportunities

LAP provides extended learning opportunities to identified LAP students through the following programs:  Literacy Lunch and summer school referrals. 

Kindergarten Literacy Lunch is offered to eligible LAP students.  Eligible kindergartners are invited to remain or arrive at school for an additional hour each day. Lessons focus on building phonemic awareness and alphabet knowledge through fun, interactive literacy activities.  A school lunch is provided through a generous donation from the PTO. 

A3 Summer Camp:  Action, Adventure, Academics. The BGPS Learning Support Program collaborates with Battle Ground Community Ed. and One Team to provide this fun opportunity to learn through organized reading & math activities, physical activities & games, crafts, book clubs with follow-up projects, and reinforcement of learning skills using iPads and other technology.
