Learning support is available to assist scholars at all grade levels to maintain and develop as a successful and independent learner. Communication between the scholar, teacher(s), and parents play an integral role in the success of each scholar, additionally, our educators create a classroom environment that maintains:

  • Strong focus on instruction regarding academics as outlined in the conference report and/or educational plan individualized instruction using strategies

  • Review of assignments

  • Check for scholar understanding

  • Communicate with classroom teachers to assist with suggestions as to how the curriculum can be differentiated to meet the scholar’s needs 

After School Tutorial, Saturday Academy and Spanish Club are additional learning support opportunities. 

MTSS/RTI: (Response To Intervention) provides a safety net for at-risk scholars, who at some point could not receive additional support until after they were already failing. RTI (Response to Intervention) is a multi-tiered (MTSS) approach to the early detection and support of scholars with learning and/or behavioral needs. The Scholar Support Team (SST) is a problem-solving process in every Georgia school. Its purpose is to find ways around roadblocks to success for any scholar referred to it. 

Section 504: of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 has been strongly emphasized by the federal government as applicable to the schools' handling of certain scholar difficulties. SST documentation can meet most Section 504 requirements.

 

Essential Skills Team: The goal of the Special Education department is to ensure that all eligible scholars with disabilities have free appropriate public education (FA PE) available to them that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living.

 

ESOL: The goal of the ESOL language instruction educational program for EL scholars is to increase both English language proficiency (ELP) and academic language proficiency in content-area subject matters.

Gifted: The gifted education program exhibits an exceptionally high degree of motivation, and/or excels in specific academic fields, and who needs special instruction and/or special ancillary services to achieve at levels commensurate with her ability(ies).
