Westminster’s Instructional Support program wants to share its success with other schools looking to increase the student/teacher ratio, give students more individualized attention and increase opportunities for students who need remediation, enrichment or reinforcement of required content and skills. From the “how and why” of the program’s establishment to practical scheduling and logistics issues, we hope that teachers and principals will learn how they can begin a similar program in their own schools. The Instructional Support team will be available for a Q&A session.
