    Provide high-quality curriculum and instruction in a supportive and effective learning environment that enables the participating children to meet the state’s student academic achievement standards as follows:

    • Utilize textbooks with supporting curriculum to meet the unique needs of all students.  Provide additional support through software and other resources
    • Use of small group instruction to individualize instruction
