Children new to the English language will be getting some extra help, during Plymouth Schools’ upcoming intersession period.
Superintendent Andy Hartley gave an update on the program to the school board last week. “In an effort to meet the needs of students, we are taking a little different focus this year with intersession for students in grades K through eight, providing some more direct language services to many of our Level 1 [English as New Language] students,” he said. “So we’re excited to see this, to reach the student population a little more directly and some extended services, and we’ll let you know how it goes.”
While the elementary schools will have a different focus, Hartley says the credit recovery model at the high school will stay the same. The list of 10 teachers and five bilingual aides for next week’s intersession was approved during last week’s school board meeting.
