  10. 10. Key Factors: Enhancement Periods <ul><li>Scheduling the enhancement period is easy compared to organizing and preparing for instruction within it. </li></ul><ul><li>All students and staff must be productively engaged during the enhancement period. </li></ul><ul><li>A decision must be made as to what role students’ choice plays in the enhancement period. </li></ul><ul><li>A computer management program with capability of tracking students’ enhancement choice/assignment and attendance is necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>Clear, consistent, and involved leadership is required to ensure that assessment, data analysis, planning intervention, enrichment instruction, remediation and progress monitoring all are carried through. </li></ul><ul><li>Time must be allocated for planning for groupings and instructional activities. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Key Factors: Enhancement Periods Cont… <ul><li>It may be wise to select specific programs for enhancement activities rather than have teachers design their own. </li></ul><ul><li>An Response to Intervention (RTI) type tier structure based upon this assessment is necessary to allocate students to enrichment, moderate intervention and intensive intervention groups. </li></ul><ul><li>A decision must be made as to whether or not special services (i.e. special education or ESL) will be “the” intervention for some qualifying students during the enhancement time or will they be served at a different time by those professionals. </li></ul><ul><li>While some school-wide, grade level, or team activities (assemblies, pep rallies, school pictures, guidance meetings, course registration, seminars, etc.), may use some of this period, the primary purpose for enhancement must be extended learning time, re-teaching, re-testing, tutoring, etc. </li></ul>
