Parent Intervention Meeting
All parents of Sango Elementary students are invited to attend a meeting on student intervention resources. Student interventions typically occur when students do not have the skills to master the grade level curriculum or the student skill level is greatly above the grade level curriculum expectation. We will discuss the types of
interventions we have in our school and how teachers provide interventions for
students. The meeting will be held at Sango Elementary on August 30th at 6p.m.
Progress Reports will be sent home Friday, August 31st.
