Elementary Targeted Services/Learning Academy

Targeted Services is a program offered at Hayes and Stevenson Elementary that is designed to supplement the traditional school day. The role of Targeted Services is to identify students who may be at risk, either academically or socially and emotionally and to provide specific interventions that will meet the whole learner. The intent of Targeted Services is to also be purposeful, with the ultimate goal being to give students enrolled the assets, strengths, and protective factors they need to be successful in school.

Students at Hayes or Stevenson can be enrolled in after school Targeted Services if they qualify for an intervention as stated by the Minnesota Department of Education. The program focus is not solely remedial; other qualifications include:

  • social and emotional learning
  • providing differentiated instruction for students 
  • linking the content delivered to in school curriculum 
  • play-based learning 
  • project-based learning

Summer School Class Offerings

These classes are being offered to all current elementary students, grades K-4. When selecting a class for your child to attend, please take a moment to read the class descriptions. Some of the class offerings are grade specific so please select the class that will best meet your child’s needs. Some of the classes are open-enroll classes. Other courses will target a specific skill set and a teacher will contact you to discuss enrolling your child in one of these targeted teacher invitation classes. If you have been invited, please select the class the teacher has referred for your child. If you enroll without a referral from a teacher, your child will be placed on a waitlist as teacher referrals will take precedence over open enrollment.
