Secondary Special Education Programs
The Learning Support Program continues into the secondary level. Learning Support teachers continue to provide direct and indirect support services in grades 7-12. Reading Improvement instruction continues through grade eight, and Study Skills instruction (classes) begins at grade seven and continues through grade twelve. The classes are available to students in need during the academic day for elective credit. An After Hours Study Skills program is also available after school on specific days. Title I, L. A. P. and special education funds support these programs.
At the high school, the Learning Opportunity Center (LOC) provides an alternative curriculum and delivery system for at-risk and credit deficient students. The program focuses on dropout retrieval and prevention and works with student services counselors to provide specialized courses of study for indentified students. Basic education funds primarily support this program.
