The Learning Services Department strives to help students understand who they are as learners and how they can experience personal achievement.
We work directly with students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grades, providing individual and small group pullout sessions, in-class assistance, and whole group lessons on student learning.
The Learning Specialists meet every week with Lead Teachers and grade-level teams to address individual student needs and develop modifications and accommodations, also assisting teachers in designing differentiated curriculum and instruction that meets the needs of a variety of students.
We connect regularly with parents/guardians to provide resources and support specific to the strengths and needs of their child. At times, referrals to outside specialists for tutoring or evaluations are necessary to support the learning of some students. Occasionally we administer screenings to determine baseline proficiencies in a specific subject or skill area. The results from these assessments guide instruction, establish goals, and lay a foundation for assessing student progress.
