Student Services works to provide an appropriate response when academic and behavioral needs are demonstrated by the student in the form of:
  • Frequent data-based monitoring for instructional decision making to empower each student to achieve high standards. Collective data may result in a referral to student’s public school for problem solving or possible evaluation and services.
  • Collaborative work with parents to design and implement Individualized Action Plans, Behavioral Plans, School/Home Plans, 504 Plans, and Alternative Diploma Plans.  
  • Pull-out and push-in services from members of the Student Services team
  • Problem solving support for grade level teaching teams to help teachers adapt and modify assignments and assessments to meet student’s needs
