Academic Support Program Information and Requirements

Grades K4-5
Grades 6-8
Grades 9-12


Grades K4-5
For elementary students, early intervention pull-out sessions are provided for reading, math, and writing, with our learning specialist that are designed to equip them with the important skills necessary for demonstrating grade level competency in the regular classroom setting.

Reading Instruction
With reading instruction, we focus on improving phonetics, reading fluency, and reading comprehension. The Orton-Gillingham approach is utilized to remediate phonics skills. This can be provided in pull-out segments or by pushing into the classroom during phonics instruction time. Reading with students one-on-one or in a small group, both inside and outside the classroom, is also utilized to help them improve their reading fluency.

Math Instruction
For math instruction, we push into the regular math class to be of support to students who may need some extra help. Per their accommodation plan requirements, students may also be offered a quiet space for additional pull-out instruction and/or extended time to complete their math tests. Reading aloud of math word problems is provided as well. With the use of manipulatives and a variety of strategies, we utilize hands-on opportunities to provide students with the tools they need to problem solve in a way that makes the most sense to them.

Writing
Formal handwriting assessments are provided based upon the results of handwriting samples. Students who would benefit from handwriting intervention to improve the legibility of their handwriting are selected to participate in small group pull-out sessions for additional instruction. The Handwriting Without Tears program is utilized during these small groups as a hands-on, engaging approach to improving the sequence, size, and orientation of letters and numbers as well as spacing and line proximity.


Grades 6th - 8th
For middle school students, we do not offer small group pull-out sessions, co-taught or resource classes. Students are supported in a regular classroom setting and must demonstrate an ability to function well in a fast-paced environment. The middle school program is not designed for students with social or behavior deficits, or who require lower student/teacher ratios, a slower pace, or modified curriculum. Students are provided with standard classroom accommodations such as preferential seating, use of a calculator/computer, use of spell-check/grammar check, etc. Students also have the option to test in a quiet space and receive extended time and/or have tests read aloud if it is a support recommendation on their educational psychological evaluation.

Connections Class
Our connections class is available for middle school students with learning plans and is designed to provide them individualized attention and support on class assignments from the classroom teacher and our learning specialist. Students are also taught helpful study and organizational skills that serve as tools they can utilize as they prepare to go on to high school. All 6th graders with learning plans are required to take this class in place of an elective for at least the first semester. The class is designed to assist with the transition into middle school and to provide students necessary tools they will need to build a strong foundation for academic success.


Grades 9-12
For high school students, we do not offer small group pull-out sessions, co-taught or resource classes. Students are supported in a regular classroom setting and must demonstrate the ability to function well in a fast-paced environment.
