Welcome from the Program Coordinator

Peterson Scholarship Coordinator Mr. Ben Swick

Welcome to the Carroll High School Intervention Department!  Our mission is to provide all students, who possess varying strengths and abilities, the opportunity to thrive and reach their fullest potential as a member of the Carroll community.  Our program is designed to provide for the needs of all students by meeting them where they are academically and helping them grow throughout the year.  Carroll High School is a Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship provider.  This allows students with special needs to receive scholarship funds for their education, specially designed instruction, and related services (such as speech therapy).  The Intervention Department provides creative models of learning through small group instruction, co-teaching, inclusion, and team teaching. Our hope for students in our program is that they grow steadily throughout the years, and leave Carroll with confidence in their abilities, both inside and outside the classroom.

Carroll High School provides intervention services to students with a current Evaluation Team Report (ETR) and Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Services Plan (SP) and employs four, full-time Intervention Specialists.  Our Intervention Specialists provide support to students in order to be successful within the general education curriculum and work to ensure that students are using strategies and resources throughout their four years here, as well as to prepare them for college or a career of their choice after they graduate high school.

At Carroll, most students in the intervention program receive one period a day of individualized instruction with an Intervention Specialist.  Instruction provided to students is based on their IEP/SP and varies based on their identified needs.  Common areas of instruction include reading comprehension, mathematics problem solving and calculation, written expression, study skills and organization, and social skills.
