Academic Support Programs (incl. Title IA / Learning Assistance Program)

The Issaquah School District's LAP program mission is to provide intensive intervention for students not meeting standard in literacy. The goal of the program is to accelerate learning for these students and bring them quickly to standard.

Test scores from Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA), i-Ready, district assessment scores, grades, Fountas and Pinnell reading assessments, and teacher observation are combined to create a rank-ordered list of students. Students are invited into LAP programs, beginning with those most in need of service. As students exit the program, their place is taken by the next student with greatest need. Students identified for LAP services are taught by highly qualified, certificated, teachers in a small group setting.
