    Well, our school did somewhat the same this year. Our district mandated sometype of intervention model for all students. What we came up with is somewhat similar to what your school will be doing next year. We grouped our students by state testing levels. In our grade, 4th, we have 3 teachers. Two teachers taught English Language Arts and the other taught mathematics. Our kids deployed for two hours and went to their respective classes, depending on what levels they performed. We then pre-tested them on specific standards, taught the standards for a specific set of time (depending on the standard), and finally post tested the children. This cycle has been going on since the beginning of the school year. There are many good things about deployment, but, there are some negatives as well. The BIG positive is that you are somewhat working with students at about the same levels of ability and one standard is the focus at a time. The two BIG negatives are that it takes A LOT of prep work and you don't get to see your own students until mid-afternoon. I think that the children have liked having other teachers teach them and teachers get to know other students in their grade levels as well.
    Jus thave patience because it WILL feel like you are teaching in middle or high school. Good Luck!
