Student Resource for Practice / Review
SuMMit 8th grade students had the opportunity to take the EXPLORE test last fall, and will soon be going over the results in order to learn what careers might be interesting and if they are on track for college. This assessment will help students begin to think about what they want to do in high school and beyond.
As parents, you are your student’s first and most important teachers in life, so they will need you to be involved in their journey through high school and through post-secondary training and college opportunities.
To gain a better understanding of your student’s EXPLORE results, please view the following PowerPoint presentation by clicking the link, selecting PowerPoints, etc. Scroll down until you find: EXPLORE Summit June 19 Powerpoint FINAL.ppt and be sure to click "DOWNLOAD".
Parents - Understanding Student's EXPLORE Test results
You will receive your student’s EXPLORE results and have an opportunity to speak with Ms. Kent, SuMMit EXPLORE coordinator during Parent/Teacher conferences on February 20-21, 2013.
Juniors will take the ACT assessment on Tuesday April 23, 2013. The results provide academic strengths and weaknesses predicting students' college readiness as well as providing information for career exploration and planning. Prepare students for Success on the ACT with test information, test-taking strategies and practice multiple-choice tests including directions on how to score the practice tests.
Review: Preparing for the ACT
SuMMit School is Florence Unified School District's day school program for students with emotional disabilities. Students are placed at SuMMit through an Individualized Education Plan team meeting. Our program consists of five classrooms, each with a teacher and two paraprofessionals. Additionally, we have three Behavioral Health Technicians who assist in behavior management, a Social Worker and a school Psychologist. Our program is based on positive behavior intervention.

ED-P Program Definition and Compliance Statement
The FUSD ED-P (Emotional Disabilities-Private day school) Program has been established in compliance with all programmatic guidelines set by the Arizona Department of Education. The ADE affords public schools the ability to develop “schools” within their districts for students with severe emotional disabilities that would be otherwise sent to private day schools.
ED-P Program Mission
The ED-P Program’s mission is to provide structured, creative, and engaging academic, behavior management, and social skills instruction to children with intensive behavioral health needs. Students will be empowered with the necessary skills to live with dignity and successfully transition into their communities and a less restrictive educational environment.
Population of Students Served
Students receiving academic instruction in the ED-P Program are identified as having an Emotional Disability. There may be an indication of mental illness with the need for mental health services. The students are enrolled in the K-12 Program because they exhibit behaviors with intensity and duration that exceeds those of students served in a self-contained setting. Intense needs of students require a structure that provides additional supervision and safety. There is also a therapeutic component that is not mandated in the traditional self-contained ED classroom. FUSD has identified 25 students that are eligible for enrollment.
Special education programs and supports are based on a continuum of services that identify the least restrictive environment in which a student’s needs can be met. Students attending the ED-P Program are identified as needing an alternative educational setting and therapeutic intervention to meet their intensive behavioral needs. Once students have achieved mastery of skills required, they are transitioned to a less restrictive environment.
