Meeting Students Needs:
In order to help meet the special needs of a student, a Child Study Team is developed.

The Child Study Team is initiated through the child's classroom teacher.  The necessary paperwork is completed to determine a plan of action to best meet the child's needs. The parent's input is an integral part of this process.

Through the building level Child Study Team, a global approach is initiated to identify needs for potential high-risk students.

The objective of the Child Study Team is to bring together a variety of professional perspectives to provide recommendations.

It is the goal to meet the needs of your child through a partnership between the home and school, in order to help your child have a positive and successful school experience.
