The program’s goal is to provide support to individuals with mild to moderate special needs. Such support includes help with writing, reading comprehension, mathematics, test preparation and organization. All identified students must be capable of functioning successfully in the regular classroom. Decisions regarding referral, admission, continuation and release from the resource program are made jointly by the Learning Center coordinator, administrators and classroom teachers.
The Learning Center coordinator reviews existing records to identify students who may need monitoring, referral for evaluation, and in consultation with the Division Director, to consider alternative materials and curricular modifications to meet individual needs and learning styles. The coordinator also facilitates communication among administrators, teachers, and parents. Meetings are scheduled as needed. There is a fee for this service.
