The Norris Academy learner network includes two skill acceleration labs to best reach learners where they are in reading and math skills.

The two skill acceleration labs offer learners a risk free environment so they can build enjoyment in reading or math. As learners gain confidence in their needed area, their skills are brought up to the appropriate grade level. The literacy and numeracy coaches support a learner’s ability to identify what skills they need. Within a learner’s pathway, the literacy and numeracy coaches support learners toward their achieving their goals.

Along with direct intervention, learners have opportunities to engage with small groups of learners or individually check-in to the skill acceleration labs. This collaborative learning and voluntary check-ins increase learner advocacy and voice in their learning process.
