About Gateway to Success
The Gateway to Success program started in the 2015-2016 school year as a way to get students in elementary school back on grade level. The program is an accelerated paced program that puts two years of content into one year of instruction. Students selected to be part of the program are taught skills which help them master instructional goals that were difficult in the past. Students must meet all program guidelines in order to be promoted two grade levels by the end of the year. Teachers participate in many instructional workshops to ensure they are meeting the academic needs of the students. Parents also play a critcal part in the program. They communicate regularly with teachers to make sure they are aware of the progress their child is/is not making. A strong partnership between the student, school and home is a must in order for students to have successful programs.
