    Notice: Public School Choice (PSC) & Supplemental Education Services (SES) will no longer be offered by Rochester School District and Grand Mound Elementary.

    Due to the passing of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in December of 2015, the Rochester School District will no longer be offering Public School Choice (PSC) or Supplemental Education Services (SES) after the 2015-16 school year.  

    For information regarding regular after-school programs please contact the staff at your child's school.

    The goals of Rochester School District are:  

    • Ensure all students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve success.
    • Create engaging learning experiences based on caring relationships, high academic standards and relevance to the changing world.
    • Involve families and community in promoting high levels of student achievement, respect, and pride in our schools.
    • Promote and protect the community’s investment in resources that optimize student achievement.
             How do Title I and LAP support those goals?
    The Title I Program is designed to help students served by the program to achieve proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards.  Rochester School District operates  “school-wide” Title I programs to upgrade  instructional programs for the entire school.  These programs use instructional strategies based on scientific research and implement parental involvement activities. 

    The Learning Assistance Program (LAP) is Washington’s state-funded program providing additional academic support to eligible students.  Kindergarten through 4th grade students who show deficits in reading are targeted for additional support both in and out of the classroom.

    Extended Day Opportunities include a broad range of programs that provide children with academic interventions beyond the traditional school day, and in some cases, beyond the traditional school year. Extended learning programs are a strategy for improving or enhancing student achievement, and for students who need extra support to be successful academically. What happens before and after school can be as important as what happens during the school day.
