Sunrise is a Schoolwide Title 1 elementary school. Since 2004, we have qualified as a schoolwide program based on our free and reduced lunch population. What this means for our students is that we have a significant amount of resources dedicated to helping our students achieve in reading and math. Our Title 1 staff consists of Karin McNett, our certificated teacher and three highly qualified para educators. Title 1 staff works with students in K - 6 using customized instruction and curricula that helps students meet academic standards.
Sunrise also has a LAP (Learning Assistance Program). This is a state funded program geared to closing the achievement gap in literacy. LAP offers supplemental services for students scoring below grade level standard in English/Language Arts. These services focus on accelerating student growth to make progress towards grade level. LAP emphasizes research based best practices designed to increase student achievement. Deb Sherwood is our LAP certificated teacher and oversees three highly qualified para educators. LAP serves students in K - 4 grades in reading.
Together, our programs sponsor many Family Nights throughout the year helping connect learning at school to learning at home.
