Bridging the Gap
2021 - 2022
The intervention team at Cottonwood Elementary and
Prairie Creek is requesting funding for 3 sets of a
supplemental math program titled Bridges Interventions.
Its purpose is to provide targeted instruction to students
who are not performing at grade level. This team consists
of three academic interventionists and three special
education resource teachers. Through much research,
we found the Bridges Interventions program, and we
believe it could dramatically increase the educational
outcomes of our students who need the greatest
assistance. We would use this program to help students
reach their full potential.
The resources purchased with our grant will provide
opportunities for additional, targeted support for
struggling learners. This helps to ensure more students
are able to achieve their educational goals. The Bridges
Intervention program uses a multi-faceted approach to
re-teaching concepts that were not previously mastered.
This includes use of manipulatives and other resources
to ensure students are able to grasp the content being
taught. Additionally, it helps students move from
concrete to more abstract in their understanding of math
