What is the Instructional Support Program?
The East Penn School District has made a commitment to Instructional Support at the middle level. This office is driven by the vision that all students can be successful if given a caring, supportive, environment where administrators, teachers, parents, and support staff all work together in collaboration. The Instructional Support Office addresses issues such as falling grades, low achievement, poor reading and math skills, and lack of motivation. Our focus is to monitor student success within the classroom. Together, parents, teachers, support staff, and students work on creating and implementing strategies to help students utilize their potential.
