Safety Net

Safety Net is a support program for students needing extra help primarily in reading, but may also include math.

This is a Tier 2 intervention, which means Safety Net teachers provide intervention in addition to intervention delivered by a student’s classroom teacher. Safety Net is typically a pull-out, small group (3-7 students) that meets one time a day for 30-mins. Occasionally, Safety Net is also delivered in the classroom, depending on the needs of the grade level and students.

Safety Net placement is based on a combination of factors, with DIBELS and SBA scores being the most important. We also consider student academic history in the classroom, personal student growth patterns, etc.
