The Mission of the K-5 Early Intervention Program is to establish a collaborative partnership between schools and family service agencies to serve children and their families. This is accomplished through a variety of services which enable the children to achieve academic and social success.
In fulfilling Delaware’s commitment to improve the school environment for children, the K-5 early Intervention Program (originally The K-3 Program) was implemented in 1996. This innovative award winning program (received the Harvard Award for Innovation in Government, 2009) is a collaborative effort between the Department of Services for Children, Youth and Their Families (DSCYF), Division of Prevention and Behavioral Health Services, the Department of Education (DOE) and participating public school districts. Participation in the program is for children attending Kindergarten through fifth grade and their families. The K-5 Early Intervention Program addresses issues within the home that affect performance in the classroom. The goal is to enable families to support the social and academic growth and the healthy development of children so they may attain positive outcomes in school.
