Eligible students are those achieving below grade level on the state’s assessment, and 11th and 12th grade students at risk of not graduating. Achievement on district assessment of basic skills may also be considered.

LAP funds are available to support programs in grades K-12 in reading, writing, mathematics, and readiness for those subjects.

Additional support is provided to students in Math at all grade levels and Reading in grades five through eight at Bay View, and Edison elementary schools. LAP funds also support students at the high school in retrieving credits necessary for graduation in grades eleven and twelve.
