Anser Exceptional Child Services has the privilege of working with all Anser students. Our roles include but are not limited to the:
Exceptional Child Services supports (ECS) Anser General Education Teachers who by the very nature of the way they teach utilize best practices to differentiate, scaffold, modify, and make need based accommodations available to all students. ECS also provides supplemental instruction and targeted small group instruction when an intervention or additional support is in the child’s best interest.
The Anser Charter School ECS Crew collaborates with Boise School District staff, Anser general education teachers, students and parents to provide a student centered continuum of service. We all work together to evaluate formal and informal student assessment (IRI, ISAT, CBM, AIMS, etc) results, in conjunction with other known information, to develop and implement individually designed programs to help the students meet their classroom, academic and character goals, and/ or Individual Education Plan (IEP) goals and objectives.
The Exceptional Child Services Crew have one full-time special education teacher who also serves as program director, two part-time special education teachers and five (5) paraeducators. The paraeducators have breadth of education and experience to include but not limited to three certified teachers. Our Student Support Specialist (Behavior Interventionist) is pursuing her Master’s in counseling at NNU, our math paraprofessional has completed her studies as a math teacher and our AIMS and reading coordinator is a certified elementary educator. In addition, we work with a team from the Boise School Direct to include a part-time school psychologist, two part-time speech and language pathologists and a part time occupational therapist.
