Students may qualify to receive some of the district’s Academic Intervention Services on the basis of classroom-based assessment results, below-grade level scores on standardized tests, or recommendations by their teachers. The level of support varies based on a student’s needs and may include extra help, regular small-group instruction, learning labs in content areas, push-in programs (a teacher comes into the classroom to work one-on-one or with a small group of students), direct instructional support in the regular classroom, a consult model, and progress monitoring.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Commack District Curriculum
The district has created overviews for the primary grades, third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, and grades 6-8 to give parents a better idea as to how the Common Core Standards work and are implemented at their child’s grade level. In primary school math, schools use the enVision program, which focuses on 16 topics—pared down from 20, as the new standards call for the teaching of fewer topics but in greater depth. This program also allows parents to access their child’s math textbook from home.
To help young children excel at the Common Core Standards for English language arts, parents can have their children discuss ideas within nonfiction texts, discuss an author’s purpose for writing a text, choose age-appropriate reading material, model everyday writing (e.g.: shopping lists), and write stories that use evidence and details with their children. The goal is for students to develop strong analytic skills in reading that also translate into their writing. The writing curriculum emphasizes a variety of purposes for writing and techniques associated with each.

Chalk Talk: Snow Days: For Parents
When winter is in full force, and northern parts of the U.S. see snowstorms and bitterly cold temperatures, children will likely see a few school days. Just because they have school off doesn’t necessarily mean they can’t do any learning. Parents should be aware of what students are doing and learning in school to give them extra practice. They can give them math problems that are similar to others they have recently completed or assign them relevant problems from their textbook (if they have it at home) that they haven’t yet solved. They can have them practice reading their weekly story from their basal reader or practice their spelling words. A fun idea is for parents and their children to play an educational game related to what they are learning in school. A more general way to get students involved in something educational on their snow days is to have them read (which they should be doing anyway!); allow them to choose any book they want. If all else fails, having students play educational computer games on their unexpected day off is better than nothing!
