The goal of Student Success Center is to cultivate “self-directed learners.” This means that students are supported in learning how to self-advocate, seek help, and take responsibility for their own workload. Our primary population are students with diagnosed learning differences/challenges, but our center will be open to any student seeking academic support.
List of 4 items.
For students who are struggling and/or have diagnosed learning challenges.
Each teacher of these students receives this plan and are executive it throughout the year.
At the beginning of the school year, meetings will be held to discuss this plan, and the accommodations/modifications in the plan, so that it is clear what is to be done throughout the year. Attending this meeting should be:
All classroom teachers of a given student
The student’s advisor
Assistant Head of School or Dean of Students
A member of Student Success Center
A copy of the Accommodations/Modifications should also be shared with the student’s parents.
Support team members will share the accommodations and/or modifications list with the parents and answer any questions about them.
Support team members will communicate with parents how the Student Success Center works. They communicate about students’ rising or falling levels of independence (“self-directed learning”), growth of self-advocacy and progress toward academic skills.
For students needing extra “out-of-class” support.
Students with learning challenges who have been selected by teachers/Success Team members as needing extra “out-of-class” support may be placed in a “course” on their schedule called “Student Success Center” – during those blocks, they work with a support teacher either one-on-one or in a small group. Depending on the student, this will happen 1x or 2x week.
