Curricular Services

Title 1

Title 1 is the nation’s largest Federal Assistance Program for Schools. Title 1 provides assistance for students who must accelerate their progress to perform at or near grade level. The Title 1/Academic Support program here at Seven Generations is designed to provide students with extra help in order to bring their academic skills to the high, challenging academic standard needed to be successful in school. We currently provide Academic Support K-3 in reading. Title 1 resources are directed toward students who need the most. These services are designed to supplement students’ regular education instruction in reading. Students qualify for additional support based upon benchmark assessments as well as teacher recommendations. Academic Support services are in addition to core reading instruction.

Tutoring may take place in class or out of class. This is supplemental and your child is not missing valuable class instruction.

English Learner (EL) Identification

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VI, Language Minority Compliance Procedures, requires school districts to identify EL students. There is a responsibility under federal law to serve ELs who need English Language Development (ELD) Instruction as well as academic supports in order to be successful in school. SGCS follows the standardized English Learner Identification Procedure – Pre-K 
  • required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE).
    All parents/guardians enrolling a student in the District must fill out a Home Language Survey (HLS) when registering. The HLS is included as part of the registration packet for all new students. 

If a parent/guardian responds yes to any of the questions on the HLS, an ESL Program Specialist. will then follow the PDE English Learner Identification Procedure K-12.


The process will include a family interview conducted by an ESL Program Specialist. and a review of prior academic records. Dependent upon evidence of English language proficiency, the student may then be screened using the KW-APT, WIDA SCREENER, or WIDA MODEL.

Placement into the Language Instruction Educational Plan (LIEP) will not be made without notifying parent(s)/guardian(s). Parent(s)/guardian(s) have the right to refuse placement in the District’s LIEP.

Language Instruction Educational Program (LIEP)

  • Pennsylvania Regulation,  (22 PA. Code §4.26) requires that:
    Every school district shall provide a program for each student whose dominant language is not English for the purpose of facilitating the student’s achievement of English proficiency and the academic standards for § 4.12 (relating to academic standards). Programs under this section shall include appropriate bilingual-bicultural or English as a second language (ESL) instruction.*
    As used here, the term “program” refers to:

    • planned English language development instruction by a qualified ESL/Bilingual Education teacher, and
    • adaptations/modifications in the delivery of content instruction and assessments by all teachers based on student’s language proficiency levels and the Pennsylvania English Language Development Standards (PA ELDS) Framework for ELs as well as the Pennsylvania academic standards.

 

According to SGCS Board Policy 139 ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE Program, the Board shall approve a written program plan of educational services for students whose dominant language is not English.

Technology

Seven Generations Charter School provides one to one technology to students. Technology is utilized to enhance learning through research, application, and intervention throughout curricular areas.

 

We are excited to provide each K-5 student a 1:1 technology device for learning! Technology is utilized to enhance learning through research, application, and intervention throughout curricular areas.

Each student is required to fill out a Technology Acceptable Use Agreement – per year, per child.

Additionally, in order to protect these learning resources and ensure availability of technology to our students, SGCS will require a one-time insurance payment of $25 per student in their Kindergarten Year. This one-time fee will ensure sustainability of our program.

By paying the required fee, you are ensuring that in the event that your child’s device should break or get damaged, your child will have full access to a loaner device while their device is being evaluated. If insurance is not paid, your child is not guaranteed access to a loaner device, and Seven Gen does not assume responsibility for the cost of repairs.

Thank you for contributing to our 1:1 Technology Program. We appreciate you!

Email confirmation will be sent to this address.
