The APAs make an impact by supporting our teachers and they also ensure students receive plenty of assistance outside of the classroom walls. They strive to ensure any student can get help in any subject at any time.They work with school staff to develop effective intervention systems and processes to monitor individual students as they progress towards completing graduation and A-G requirements. They oversee all of our on-site supports for students including before and after school classes, tutoring, and Saturday School.
Some students need more intensive intervention, and the APAs work to ensure these are extensions of the classroom. They help to provide assistance for our students with disabilities, especially the growing population of 504-identified students. They know many students face significant challenges outside of school that impact their achievement and they work to remove barriers and provide scaffolds to help to our growing number of low-income, homeless students, Foster Youth, and our pregnant and parenting teens.
In addition to our inspiring staff, we know students need support at home, and the APAs work not only to provide opportunities for parents and community members to become engaged participants with our schools, but also to train and educate them so they can become effective and informed advocates and mentors for their kids.
Student achievement is at an all-time high in the Chaffey District and yet we continue to have students who struggle. The APAs speak and act on behalf of these students and their success after high school. They can’t do it alone, and they very much depend upon teaming up with staff to accomplish the significant tasks laid before them.
