Learning Assistance Program


LAP is a state-funded program allocated to support schools in serving students with the greatest deficits in academic basic skills as identified by statewide assessments.  Basic skills are defined as reading, math, writing and readiness.  LAP is intended to be supplemental.  This is to be in addition to basic education support, not in place of.


Eligible students are those achieving below grade level on the state’s assessment in grades K-7.  Achievements on the district assessments of basic skills are also considered.


The assessments used in Shelton School District to qualify students for LAP include Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) and easyCBM.
