|Student Resources Team (SRT)|
|The Student Resource Team (SRT) in Middle School aims to provide support and care to ensure that each student becomes a successful learner. The team works with classroom teachers to provide flexible opportunities for students to access the knowledge and understandings included in the curriculum. By using a Response to Intervention (RTI) model, SRT works in collaboration with teachers to ensure that all students are successful.|
|English as an Additional Language (EAL)|
|The Middle School English as an Additional Language (EAL) Program is designed to develop English language competency of EAL students to meet grade level, subject specific, and school expectations. The EAL department scaffolds language acquisition in content and academic concepts to support students so they can access the mainstream curriculum. EAL students are placed in their grade level mainstream humanities, math and science courses. As needed, an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course provides support for these mainstream classes while developing academic vocabulary and reading skills.|
The learning resource program supports students with their learning skills and there is a learning resource specialist at each grade level to assist teachers and students. We use a Response To Intervention (RTI) model with three tiers of support.
Movement in and out of the different tiers of support is decided by teaching teams and the Student Resource Team (SRT). Decisions are data based: grades, MAP, ISA, baseline and progress monitoring data, classroom assessments, and teacher recommendations are all taken into consideration when making placement decisions.
Intensive Learning Support
The Life-Centered Education (LCE) program is designed to serve students who have a diagnosed intellectual or developmental disability and require individualized academic and social skill instruction. The program is not appropriate for students with intense emotional or behavioral needs or severe health impairments. Students accepted in our program receive customized instruction and support from highly trained special educators and assistant teachers. Additionally, students are integrated into our Middle School elective classes and optional after-school activities.
Life-Centered Education (LCE) focuses on teaching literacy, mathematics, social skills, and life skills to students with intensive special education needs. Individual goals are outlined on ISKL Student Success Plans (SSP), which are developed after evaluation by an Educational Psychologist. Goals outlined on the SSP are addressed daily in Life-Centered Education classes.
For more information on the Life-Centered Education (LCE) please contact Ms. Julia Love at email@example.com.
