AF Bushwick Empower Program
AF Bushwick Middle is home to the AF Bushwick Empower Program – Achievement First’s intensive program serving students with disabilities. The Empower Program’s design builds on the three pillars of our special services program: meaningful inclusion, intervention and specialized instruction to access grade-level curriculum. As a small-scale program beginning in 2018-19, it will serve students in grades 5-8 from Achievement First Brooklyn middle schools. The program is transitional in nature, with the ultimate goal for many students to have a thoughtfully planned and supported transition back to co-taught and general education classrooms at their original Achievement First school.
