What Is Power 30?
Power 30 is Dailard’s new program: daily, small group instruction targeted to your child’s skills, needs and interests. The small groups have been designed by or identified by your child’s classroom teacher. All students in all grade levels K-5 participate four days of week for four different cycles of learning throughout the year. The first cycle will be four weeks, the second cycle will be for six weeks and the third and fourth cycles will be five weeks each with 1 or 2 weeks’ break between cycles. Each student will receive 2,400 minutes of focused instruction throughout the year, tailored to their specific academic needs. The program has been funded primarily by the Dailard School Foundation. Parents and staff collaborated to choose four quality people to provide additional instruction support for the groups during Power 30 time.

Power 30 sessions are not held during minimum day schedules.
