Learning Assistance Program -LAP
LAP is a supplemental services program that assists underachieving students and aims to reduce disruptive behaviors in the classroom. LAP programs serve eligible students who need academic support for English language arts and mathematics, or who need to develop the readiness skills to successfully learn these core content areas. LAP also serves students who need behavioral support in order to reduce disruptive behavior and successfully access core curriculum in the classroom.
In accordance with Strengthening Student Educational Outcomes, districts are required to support k-4 first and report to OSPI the amount of academic growth gained by students participating in the Learning Assistance Program, as well as their entrance and exit assessment information. Districts are also required to report the practices, activities, and programs that were used to support LAP students to demonstrate which are the most effective.
