Special Education Services
The services that students receive are designed to assist academic performance and progress that are written in their IEP. The student’s case manager, with the assistance from the student's teachers, implement and evaluate the IEP. The case manager also serves as the contact person for parents/guardians and other faculty. When in Tutorial, students are not limited to working with only their case manager to accomplish the goals of their IEP. They may receive assistance from any available staff member. If students need additional assistance, they may utilize any or all of the following resources: the IRC, the Write Place, regular education teachers, guidance counselors, the special education transition planner, and the college counseling office.
Many activities take place in the Tutorial rooms to assist students in meeting the goals of their IEP. These activities include, but are not limited to:
- Review respective IEP goals with each student periodically throughout the school year.
- Instruct students in organizational, study, and test-taking skills.
- Assist students in applying skills to their actual daily course work and homework assignments.
- Work with students to gain an understanding of their learning strengths and weaknesses.
- Provide strategies to improve their ability to cope with these difficulties.
- Help students understand the accommodations written in their IEP and assist them in accessing these accommodations.
