Eiber Elementary is an 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 89%. At the present time, approximately 1/3 of our students have a language background other than English, and 90% 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-4 who are receiving instruction in Spanish. The primary outcome is for these students to achieve bi-literacy; achieving proficiency and being literate 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 area of reading and math. We currently have one additional FTE 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 K-2 on developing and administering appropriate assessments, analyzing results and helping to guide their thinking and decision making through the data team meeting process. Two FTEs 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.
