FAIRFIELD, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Camas County is one of those k through 12 schools that embodies a sense of community.
Christie Olsen, First Grade Teacher at Camas County School says, "a second–grader struggling in reading can build self–esteem reading to a kindergartner or 1st grader."
One of the programs they offer is Response to intervention.
Christie Olsen is on the RTI team as the team is trying to improve the school's I-SAT scores.
"It's our way of working with students to make sure they're getting their educational goals/needs met at every level from strategic intervention which is the students who need to catch up to their grade level," says Olsen.
Last week, the environmental science club took a trip to yellowstone national park. It was the third year they went on the trip.
George Collier, Science Teacher at Camas County School says, "it's probably the first time to yellowstone for them...There's just a great, wonderful intact pristine ecosystem over there, that's unique in the whole country. Human impact is relatively light over there. You get to study the natural ecology of that area."
Collier says teaching at a school as small as Camas County, is much like a private school environment providing for a unique experience for both the teacher and the student.
According to Collier, "you have the opportunity to do all kinds of school trips and activities you couldn't do in a larger school."
