Job Snapshot

Job Description

Overview

The Kent Alternative Program (KAP) is an IAEP (Interim Alternative Education Placement) program for students in Kent County with behavioral issues who require additional supports in order to be successful. Teachers and related service providers in this program mirror a student’s home school by administering the same educational and social-emotional interventions, but they do so in a more therapeutic and highly structured environment.

At KAP, the behavioral/counseling component is the primary focus and is based on an individual and schoolwide behavior management system with built-in incentives and rewards for positive behavior. In accordance with this, students have access to individual counseling outside of their regularly scheduled services when needed. By offering a small classroom environment with a high teacher-to-student ratio and one-to-one counseling services, this program allows students the ability to quickly transition back to their home school. Future progress and success are ensured through a transitional track once the students return to the public school setting.

Catapult Learning is an organization of dedicated people who know how exciting and rewarding it is to help children achieve. Our mission is to create brighter futures for all students, regardless of the learning barriers or other challenges they may face.
