Each year when school starts, students in grades 3-6 can apply for the Emerging Leaders "America On Track" after-school program. The program is provided at no cost to families, and meetings are held at Culverdale one afternoon each week.
Through Title 1 funding, our school provides additional academic and social-emotional support to students in grades K-6. Based on common assessment data, our Learning Lab instructors provide reading interventions to help our identified underperforming students with their decoding, fluency, comprehension, and writing skills. After-school Extended Learning classes are offered for math and/or reading support, based on common assessment data and staff observations. Culverdale is staffed with a full-time Elementary Resource Counselor who provides whole class lessons as well as private or small group school-based counseling sessions. We also team with community resources and the IUSD Prevention & Intervention department to help families get the necessary support at home.
Culverdale is one of three IUSD elementary schools that host the K-6 English Language Development (ELD) "Newcomer" program. Students with little-to-no English have access to the full academic curriculum with support from additional staff, ELD instructional strategies, and daily opportunities to interact with non-ELD students. Our school also hosts the TK-6 "Mild/Mod" Specialized Academic Instruction program.
All students benefit from our culture of inclusion and multiple tiers of support at Culverdale.
