Academic Enhancement

The A.E. Program

The goal of the Academic Enhancement Program is to offer services to students with learning differences. All students receiving modifications to their academic program must take part in the Academic Enhancement Program. The program offers modifications, skills classes with limited enrollment, and special monitoring of academic progress. A fee is assessed to those enrolled in this program.

Working together, we can assure that each child will have the possibility of academic success at E. D. White.

The Academic Enhancement Program is designed to meet the individual needs of the students. For that reason, the program may be different for each student. The AE program has several components, and each component has a number of different facets. The following skills classes are offered:
Available for grades 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th
Available for grade 8th
Available for grade 8th
Available for grades 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th

The Skills Resource class focuses on study skills, organizational skills, and critical thinking skills.

Admission to the program begins by contacting the Academic Enhancement coordinator, Mrs. Fran Naquin. A recent professional evaluation is essential and is the parent’s responsibility. Evaluations from local school systems do not meet the needs of the program.

Please note that students who do not need to be in skills classes are still eligible for participation in the AE program and receive recommended modifications. 

The Academic Enhancement Program requires teamwork. Students, teachers, parents, and Academic Enhancement personnel work together to ensure success. All members of the team have responsibilities that must be fulfilled in order for the program plan to be successful.
