The mission of Student Programs is to ensure that the diverse and unique needs of all our students are met.
English Language Development
The goal of the English Language Development (ELD) Program is to provide a high quality, scientifically based English language instruction program for all English Language Learners (ELL). This program will provide ELL students' families with the knowledge and means to be actively involved in their children's education. ELD staff will work with parents as teams, to nurture and guide students academically and emotionally. The ELD Program uses research based instructional methods and models so all ELL students develop a solid English language proficiency foundation and exit the ELD Program as efficiently as possible.
The mission of the Gifted Services Program is to identify and challenge intellectually gifted students with appropriate learning experiences rich in depth and complexity through differentiation of instruction and learning environments. CLICK HERE for more information.
Health Services for the district are administered by certified school nurses across the district. Each campus has a designated nurse’s office. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to communicate health-related information, including chronic illness, to the site nurse and/or administrator to ensure proper care of the student.
Native American Education
The Native American Education (NAE) is a grant funded program for those students with evidence of Native American ancestry. The program operates with guidance from the Title VII and Johnson-O’Malley American Indian Education Parent Councils and Jenks Public Schools. Among the program offerings are academic mentoring (tutoring services), class dues and fees, higher education and scholarship research as well as culturally relevant activities to assist students in connecting with the Native American culture and heritage.
The mission of the Special Education Department is to provide quality educational services for students with disabilities, ages 3 - 21. Our goal is to foster individual achievement while valuing individual differences. CLICK HERE for more information.
Student Assistance Program
The purpose of the Student Assistance Program (SAP) is to identify and provide support services for students who are dealing with a variety of personal issues, including those related to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs which interfere in the student’s success in the school environment. The SAP is designed to help troubled students and their families and to encourage healthy coping skills. This is based on the conviction that school should be a safe, alcohol and drug-free environment.
