Home Education is a parent-directed educational option that satisfies the requirement for regular school attendance. Parents have the freedom to determine their child’s educational path and the plan for reaching their goals. Students can explore and learn at their own pace, in any location or at any time.

K-Shield Academics evaluates the child as a “whole” from the age of 5 – 11 years. This contributes to meaningful curriculum planning and the design of developmentally appropriate Educational Intervention Plan of Action when deemed necessary.
The K Shield Academics gives parent/caregivers specific, direct, and understandable information about their child while assessing gross motor, fine motor, communication, cognition/ thinking and reasoning, sensory, social emotional development, pre-literacy and reading skills.
The Educator Intervention Screening is an expansion to the K-Shield Academics, targeting pre-literacy and literacy skills based on common core standards for children from 5 to 11+ years of age. K-Shield special educators can help parents/caregivers with proven evidence-based reading interventions.
K-Shield special educators assist parents/caregivers with proven evidence-based interventions in reading, using progress monitoring through data collection to provide intensive reading interventions to strengthen areas that were identified as areas of concern.
The Educator Intervention Plan of Action is purposefully modeled after the Response to Intervention (RtI) – a multi-tier approach used throughout the nation within the public-school sector to support the early identification of students with learning needs.
Response to Intervention (RtI) is an approach to academic intervention used to provide early, systematic, and appropriately intensive assistance to children who are at risk for and/or underperforming as compared to appropriate grade or age-level standards.
Educator Intervention Plan of Action, in the same way as RtI, seeks to promote academic success through screening, early intervention, frequent progress monitoring, and increasingly intensive research-based instruction or interventions for children who have difficulty with academics.
Easily accessible and 100% online, Educator Intervention Plan of Action is adjusted and modified as needed, to be an effective resource to assist parents who have chosen to homeschool their children in areas of reading through a coaching and modeling approach.
