Patrice Tronstad, principal of Evergreen Elementary School, and Neal Janssen, principal at Sand Lake Elementary, presented the proposal to the board at its Jan. 14 meeting.
Tronstad anticipates a teacher student ratio of one teacher for every five students.The program has a total capacity for 45 students from each of the three schools.She said there will be nine teachers per school.
Students will be selected if they scored basic or minimum levels on writing prompt tests, do not meet district benchmarks for Measures of Academic Progress or get teacher recommendations.There are additional eligibility criteria for third graders.
Tronstad said the program is needed because there is not enough time in the school day for teachers to help some students in the way they want or in large class settings.
"The interventions are geared toward specific needs," she said."It's direct instruction, based on areas of weakness demonstrated."
Parents are being notified now so sessions can start on Jan. 29 or as soon as possible after that date.The program will be voluntary, though strongly recommended for the specific students identified, and families will have the ability to opt out of the program if they wish.
Tronstad said if a student gains the proficiency needed to be at grade level midway through the program, the student would continue the sessions but get help to move to an even higher skill level.
"It's possible they might even get skills to move a grade higher," she said.

Festival Foods loaned a 15-foot tall motorized shopping cart for Evergreen Elementary graders pass donated goods that will eventually land in the hands of Patrice Tronstad, the school#146s principal, who is perched in the cart.
Each grade level collected at least 500 items of non-perishable food, said school principal Patrice Tronstad, perched overhead and loading boxes in a cart donated by Festival Foods."This is twice as much as we normally collect," she said.

The options aren't simple to implement because the teachers weren't hired specifically for the programs, said Evergreen principal Patrice Tronstad.
The key to the success of the programs is that it has to be a teacher's choice, Tronstad said.
"Teachers need to be passionate about their particular instruction option," she said.
Just as parents hold different philosophies about raising their children, teachers believe in particular ways to instruct students, Tronstad said.
One issue with the options at Evergreen's school of 456 students, Tronstad said, is some parents and teachers would like to see the multi-age program extend into grades four and five.Yet others believe fifth grade is the time to prepare students for middle school and would best be served in a single-grade option, she said.
Looping fourth and fifth grade may be a solution, Tronstad said.

"We've got a lot of competition, you never know," said Patrice Tronstad, the school's principal.
"You can see everybody's out of chili and we're not," Tronstad said when there was about 15 minutes left in the cook-off.
Some might say you can't improve on perfection, but although Evergreen was last year's winner, their chili cooks still did their best to top last year's.
Tronstad said vinegar and brown sugar was added to this year's recipe.
