Eiber Elementary is a K-6 elementary school in Lakewood, Colorado, serving a diverse community. Unlike many other schools in Jefferson County, Eiber has experienced an increase in student enrollment over the past 3 years. We have a high number of students and families who are in transition, and our free and reduced lunch rate is 91 percent. At the present time, approximately 37 percent of our students have a language background other than English, and 90 percent of those students speak Spanish as their first language. As the community has evolved, so has the programming at Eiber.
In the 2006-07 school year, Eiber established a One-Way Dual Language program, and we currently have students in grades K-6 who are receiving their primary instruction in Spanish. These students also receive English instruction beginning in kindergarten. The primary outcome is for these students to achieve bi-literacy proficiency in both Spanish and English.
Every staff member at Eiber has met CDE's requirements for Highly Qualified, and the majority hold a Master's Degree or secondary endorsement in areas such as Literacy, Reading, ESL, or special education. Through Title I funding, Eiber has added additional support in the areas of reading and math. We currently have one full-time teacher who works in classrooms, with students and teachers, providing continuous support and professional development for math in grades 2-6. This interventionist also works with staff to plan curriculum, develop and administer appropriate assessments, analyze the results and guide their thinking and decision making through the data team meeting process. Three full-time teachers support students by providing reading intervention, which complements the instruction that is provided by the classroom teacher. These teachers provide targeted instruction, based upon the needs of each student as indicated by assessment data, and continuously progress monitor to ensure that the intervention is meeting the needs of each learner and can positively change the achievement trajectory.
Eiber also employs two instructional coaches that work side by side with teachers to plan curriculum, analyze student assessments and progress monitoring data to plan next steps in the RtI process, develop READ plans and literacy plans, while providing support through building infrastructures.
