Federal Program

  • School eligibility is determined by the percentage of students receiving Free and/or Reduced Lunch

  • Crimson Point is schoolwide


Schoolwide programs address the educational needs of children with comprehensive strategies for improving the whole school so every student achieves high levels of academic proficiency. They do not have to identify particular children as eligible for services. Instead, schoolwide programs can use all allocated funds to increase the amount and quality of learning time.

Changes to our Intervention System!

Crimson Point is taking on a transformation this school year in how we provide Reading and Math interventions to students. We will be instituting two school-wide intervention times where only interventions will be taking place no matter what room you are in. Reading interventions will take place from 9:15-9:45 and Math Interventions will be from 3:00 -3:25. Having a school-wide intervention time allows almost every adult in our building to provide small group instruction. This ties closely to our theme of the year "Better Together." All students will be getting this extra time, allowing an additional opportunity for every student to receive focused instruction at their level or according to their needs. This is outside of or normal Special Education and Title 1 intervention systems. Now students who have the need can get double Reading and Math interventions! We are excited to push ourselves with this new system to see what kind of progress our students can make over the course of one year with all the extra supports we plan to provide!
