Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening is a state provided screening tool for Virginia's Early Intervention Reading Initiative. PALs consists of two screening instruments, PALs K and PALs 1-3, which measure a child's knowledge of important literacy fundamentals, including phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, knowledge of letter sounds, spelling, concept of word, word recognition in isolation, and oral passage reading. The major purpose of PALs is to identify those students who are below grade-level expectations in these areas and may be in need of additional reading instruction. This additional reading instruction is provided by PALs tutors who come to Beazley. PALS teachers here at Beazley are Mrs. Banks and Mrs. Dooley.

The Program for Artistically Advanced Students, in partnership with the community, provides experiences that challenge the artistic student. The artistic student is gifted in vocal music, in the visual arts, or in theater. The program assists identified students in reaching their unique potential. It includes challenges and experiences in conceptual thinking and problem solving, in the development of a keen awareness of the arts and a universal expression of humanity, and one that prompts each student to explore and take artistic risks that lead to improved technical skills, self-awareness, creativity, and productivity.
