Frequently Asked Questions
How can I Open Enroll my children to Reek School?
The state of Wisconsin offers Open Enrollment so that parents have more choice as to which school their children may attend. The Open Enrollment process is accomplished online through the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) website. Parents need to fill out the form online, and they need to do this in a specific time frame which is February through April, 2014. After the open enrollment window closes, parents will be contacted by the home school and the chosen school to see if students have been accepted into the chosen school.
How can I help my child with a bullying problem?
If a child is being bullied, it is critical that a parent or a child informs the school staff. Only when we know what is happening can we step in and try to build relationships and understanding. Please speak to a teacher or to the principal. No situation when a child feels afraid or negative is too small to alert the school staff.
How do teachers at Reek School meet the needs of ALL learners?
The answer lies in a term called "differentiation." This is a process by which teachers identify the specific learning needs of their students and then provide appropriate instruction. It means that teachers will not be using the same text to teach all students. They will also allow students to show their knowledge through different processes such as taking a test, writing an essay, performing a play or creating a model.
At Reek School our small class sizes and the close collaboration among colleagues enhance the way in which we differentiate and provide the correct remediation or enrichment.
