After School Clubs 

In partnership with our PTA and outside organizations, Woodlin provides a robust after school clubs program.  There are three 8-week sessions (October-December, January-March, and April-June). Opportunities include free academic support clubs, fun community or staff led clubs, as well as outside organizations (Mad Science and Overtime Athletics).  The PTA provides support for bus transportation, and supervises the registration process.

Learning for Independence (LFI)

We are home to the cluster program for the Learning for Independence (LFI) program.  Students assigned to the LFI program have multiple and diverse disability needs including Down Syndrome, Autism, and Intellectual Disabilities.  Students work on a functional life skills curriculum characterized by basic academics and adaptive skills. Students are in self-contained classrooms and join their peers in art, music, library-media and physical education classes. 

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
We have three ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) teachers at Woodlin. Andrea Littell, who is full-time and the team lead, works with Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. Christine Stavrou, who is half-time, works with 2nd and 4th grades. Jennifer Schmorr, who is at Woodlin three afternoons, works with some 3rd and 4th grade English Language Learners. We currently have 80 ESOL students at Woodlin. ESOL teachers use a combined plug-in/pull-out model to teach formal academic English to English Language Learners. Many ESOL students are fluent in social communicative English, but still need support in developing the academic language necessary to fully access the curriculum.

Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) 

Woodlin implements the Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) framework. PBIS is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. As a PBIS school, we have begun implementing a school-wide classroom behavior management system, Star-O-Meter. Star-O-Meter is a positive behavior recognition program designed to encourage our students to consistently demonstrate Woodlin's STAR behavior expectations and foster social, community, and citizenship skills. 


On January 8, 2018, and periodically during the school year, more than two dozen students were recognized by Principal Jackson in an all-school assembly for the highest exhibition of STAR behavior.

Staff/Student Mentor Program 

Led by our school counselor, the staff and student mentor program provides additional opportunities for selected students to develop relationships with trusted adults.  Mentors and mentees have lunch together and talk regularly in order to provide sustained support for student emotional and academic well being.
