    Basic Skills Program


    The Basic Skills Program is an educational support program designed to provide instruction to students experiencing difficulty in Language Arts Literacy and/or Mathematics. Working cooperatively with the New Jersey State Department of Education’s Title I initiative, supplemental instruction materials and teacher resources are available for students to help them meet the expectations of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics.  The school district uses multiple measures to identify a student to participate in the Title I/Basic Skills program.  These measures include teacher recommendation, district benchmarks scores, and grades.

    Basic Skills teachers work with the students during their English Language Arts and Mathematics periods to reinforce the skills covered during class, help them keep their work organized and current, and teach them helpful study skills.  Students’ progress is monitored, and if students show appropriate growth, the teacher will notify parents of the students exiting the program as measured through standardized testing scores, district benchmark scores, and teacher recommendation.

    The Basic Skills Improvement Program has the following goals:

    1. To develop the basic skills necessary to function successfully in everyday life according to each student’s individual ability level.

    2. To develop and implement a Basic Skills Program which would provide a variety of experiences to meet the needs of students with a weakness in basic functional Language Arts Literacy and Mathematical skills.

    3. To assist the students in developing positive attitudes toward themselves, their school, and the community.

    4. To insure a continual means of communication between parents, teachers, students, and the community.


    It is the mission statement of the Basic Skills Department to provide students with a weakness in basic Language Arts and math skills the ability to successfully function in school and the community.
