Colfax School District provides intervention for kindergarten through grade twelve students who are in need of additional support in reading and/or math. Student eligibility across our district is determined through a multiple-measure screening process. Students in our intervention programs receive the benefit of a small group environment with targeted intervention to meet the needs of the students who are served. The goal of both LAP and Title 1 programs is to provide the necessary intervention so that students can successfully meet standards set for their grade levels.
The Learning Assistance Program (LAP) is a state-funded program which serves eligible students who need intensive academic support for ELA (English/Language Arts). With special emphasis on the early grades, kindergarten through third grade, we use state LAP funds to implement supplemental support with a focus on accelerating student growth to make progress towards grade level. The intent is for LAP-served students to increase academic growth during the period of time they are provided services. LAP emphasizes research-based best practices designed to increase student achievement. Students are instructed in small groups and student progress is monitored on a frequent basis. Families are strongly encouraged to become involved in their child’s education both in and out of school. For more information or if you have any questions, feel free to contact our LAP team.

Title 1 Part A
The Title 1, Part A Targeted program is a federally-funded program designed “To provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.” Our Title I, Part A programs support fourth grade through twelfth grade students in English Language Arts and Math. Title I, Part A programs and services provide customized instruction and curricula that helps these students meet academic standards and take an active, engaged interest in what they learn and can do. Our schools are "targeted assistance program" schools, where we identify students who are failing, or most at risk of failing, to meet the State's challenging academic achievement standards. Targeted assistance schools design, in consultation with parents, staff, and district staff, an instructional program to meet the needs of those students. For more information or if you have any questions, feel free to contact our Title 1 teachers.
