What we do:

We provide support to students with learning difficulties that interfere with their academic performance.  Professionals in the Learning Center work with students inside and outside of the mainstream classroom to ensure their success on a day-to-day basis.

Objectives:

Use information from internal and external evaluations to design individual learning plans (ILP) that guide instruction.

Provide interventions that equip students with strategies, skills and habits needed to successfully engage in the learning process.

Provide instructional, environmental, and assessment accommodations within the classroom environment to help students to become more independent learners.

Provide feedback to students, teachers and parents regarding progress toward student goals.

Individual Learning Plan (ILP)

The ILP is a document that reports the ultimate objective the student is working towards with the support of the Learning Center, and how the objective will be achieved. 

The document includes:

  • The reason for developing the ILP
  • The student’s:
    • Diagnosis Statement
    • Strengths and Areas of Development
    • Learning Style
    • Accommodations
    • Objective
    • Learning and Academic Focus
    • Data
    • Time of Service

Preschool:
Students which present alterations in their development patterns, academic, social and/or emotional skills, may be early manifestations of possible learning disabilities.

Elementary:

Students who received Learning Center services in Preschool may continue in the Learning Center in first grade.  Students who continue in the Learning Center or need to enter the Learning Center must complete a professional, external evaluation.  Learning Center staff will use provided information to design and implement specific interventions that address students’ needs.

The Learning Center is located on the first floor of the Elementary building across from the psychology office.
