• Student Study Team

    If a family member, specialist, teacher, or administrator have concerns about a students' progress, they are welcome and encouraged to call a Student Study Team (SST) meeting. In this meeting, caring adults come together to discuss students' strengths, progress, and challenges. These important meetings are an essential first step to designing an intervention program that best serves each student's unique needs!

    After-school interventions

    At McDowell, we collaborate to establish and analyze assessments that tell us what students will benefit from additional support in English Language Arts, English Language Development, and Mathematics. In 2017-18, we are excited to invite some small groups of students to receive small-group support! Contact your student's teacher to see whether your student is eligible for after school support.
