Cabrillo Park Literacy Collaborative
Patterson is the lead school of the Cabrillo Park Literacy Collaborative. Our staff is involved in intensive literacy training and equity work funded through the S.H. Cowell Foundation. Patterson has also been proud to serve as an anchor school for the Bay Area School Reform Collaborative (BASCR). Our staff regularly analyzes school data and work to improve student performance by improving teacher practice.
Student Study Team (SST) and At Risk Review Team (ARRT)
Students can be referred to the At Risk Review Team, which is a group composed of the teacher, another teacher in the same or different grade, and a support staff person who examines various instructional and/or behavioral strategies for students.
Student Study Team occurs when testing may be recommended and possible special services considered to support student learning. This team meets regularly as the safety net to monitor and plan for student success.
Language Development Program
Patterson School has some students who have limited English proficiency in addition to students with full English proficiency. English Language Development instructional techniques are used by teachers who have certification in language development.
GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) Program
The Fremont Unified School District and Patterson Elementary are committed to providing a high quality equitable program for gifted and talented students in K-12 grades. Teachers are trained to recognize and acknowledge the characteristics of students who are performing above grade level and who are strong candidates for nomination and identification for the GATE program at the end of third grade. At all Fremont schools, the GATE program provides an academically enriched program that teaches and extends the core curriculum. If you are interested in more information about the GATE program, you may ask your student's teacher or review the F.U.S.D. link to the GATE program here:
