Academic Opportunity

School of Distinction AwardCalhoun County Schools

Principal, Mrs. Summer Davis

Superintendent, Mr. Joe Dyar

Weaver Elementary began Academic Opportunity (AO) out of the desire to meet the needs of every student. A 45-minute time block was set aside for fourth, fifth, and sixth graders to receive intervention or enrichment in heterogeneous groups across the three grade levels. AO provided a systemic effort of instructional supports for reading and math students. Reading classes exhibited a progression of intervention that began with fundamental phonics skills. To meet the needs of students with dyslexia characteristics, reading intervention was provided through programs such as Sounds Sensible, Spire levels 1-6, Rewards, Rewards Plus, and Comprehension Toolkit on grade level. Math intervention used Eureka Math to provide standards-based instruction for non-mastered skills. AO groups were fluid and allowed students to move in and out based on need and progression of mastery throughout the year. Students were screened at the beginning of the year using Scantron and STAR. Non-grade level performing students were given other screeners to identify non-mastered skills. While the screening process was challenging, Weaver identified barriers for learning in all students.  The counselor led an enrichment group for students performing over a year above grade level in both math and reading where students wrote dramas and produced character education video broadcasts. This program was truly an academic opportunity based on each student’s greatest need.
