Support Services

English Language Development

After students are identified as an English learner during the registration process, they are given an initial screener to assess their English language ability using the W-APT.  

English learners receive a 45 minute dedicated English Language Development (ELD) block daily to explicitly teach and support scholars with language development in reading, writing, speaking and listening. ELD blocks use the EL Achieve curriculum. English learners are assessed each January on the ACCESS test to determine their current English proficiency in each of the four domains. When English learners show a proficient level of English on their ACCESS test, the CH-ISA team reviews a body of evidence to determine if scholars will continue in ELD services. English learners who are no longer in ELD are monitored for two years to ensure that scholars are academically successful.

Special Education Services

Our team is comprised of multiple licensed individuals with advanced degrees in special education.  Our students deserve a world class education with unrestricted access to all curriculum, school programs, and activities.  Our instructors provide access through accommodations and modifications as mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Act, 2004, (IDEA, 2004).

Take Note Colorado!

We’re excited to offer all Wyatt students the opportunity to participate in Take Note Colorado’s “Little Kids Rock” band, a program that inspires children with culturally responsive music education.
