Charter School Program
Kid Street Charter has fully adopted The
California Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Teachers craft units and lessons
that teach essential knowledge and skills to succeed in today’s world. This is
done with the full spectrum of learners in mind. With the addition of
middle school grades in 2016-2017, Kid Street will begin to put more focus on
science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). Using technology
tools, students will make inquiries and solves problems while using engineering
and scientific thought. Read more
In the Primary classrooms, emphasis is on mastery of early learning
skills and creating a solid understanding of basic concepts as well as building
positive social interactions with peers and adults. Students learn through hands
on explorations in a center-based classroom environment.
In the Intermediate classrooms, writing becomes a daily practice with
emphasis on creative writing and the development of ideas. At the societal
level, students study about the influences of the world around them. Students
become aware of their own actions and how they can personally affect their
community. Read more
After School Program
The after school program is open
Monday-Friday from 3:00-6:00 pm, and Wednesdays from 1:00 pm-6:00 pm. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing
environment while our kids discover new hobbies and activities that will both
be therapeutic and help stimulate their minds. We provide an academic
program where the After School Program Staff collaborates with the Charter
School teachers. Students complete the homework from the school day and
then move onto other skill based activities that the classroom teachers have
provided to students on an individual, small group, or whole class basis.
small group activities are available for enrichment. These include: arts
and crafts, dance, cheerleading, theatre, science club, woodworking, gardening,
sports, fashion design, karate, photography, music, group games, and
cooperative and individual sports.
Kid Street’s Intervention Programs provide support for individual academic and personal success. We are committed to providing individualized instruction and enrichment opportunities for students to ensure that gifted students are challenged and struggling students are supported. Our Response to Intervention Pyramid outlines the curriculum used throughout our programs.
Our Intervention Program Manager works closely with the teachers to identify students who need one on one or small group tutoring. Input from parents or guardians through our Student Study Team (SST) program is highly valued so we can work together at school and the home to provide continuity for the student’s education plan.
Kid Street also has a strong volunteer tutor program in place where we partner students with volunteers based on their skill set and the specific student needs. Our goal is to ensure that every child gets the help they need and has a positive learning experience.
We work closely with the Santa Rosa School District’s Special Education Department to create Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) for students who qualify. These services include: Assessments and IQ testing, Specialized Academic Instruction, Individual Counseling and Language/Speech Therapy.
Our academic intervention program staff and teachers:
- Develop and implement individualized programs for students complimentary to individual educational strengths and needs
- Interpret the abilities and challenges of students, assist in classroom intervention strategies, modify general education curricular as necessary, and assist the students with regular class assignments
- Communicate regularly with parents and professional staff regarding each student’s educational, social and personal needs
- Participate in professional growth activities through staff development, workshops, and higher education
Our Intervention program also includes onsite counseling through a contracted counseling organization, life skills classes and food/clothing programs to support our students and families. Having a full belly and a safe learning environment helps the students to be of well mind so they can focus on academic and personal success.
