Learning Resources at Middle School

Learning Resource Support

Learning Resource support helps students conquer obstacles to their academic success. For some students, this help is in the form of workshops and coaching to improve study skills, note-taking and time management. Other students may require more specific support due to learning differences.

Individual Education Plans (IEPs)

Whether students are gifted or they need help with specific learning challenges, our learning resource support program helps all learners reach their full potential.

Individual Education Plans are usually developed when students have undergone a psycho-educational assessment, and are based on recommendations from the psychologist. Learning Resource specialists offer many different kinds of support, which includes accommodations for testing, assistance with note-taking, providing access to assistive technology, and having regularly scheduled meetings to discuss issues and review progress.

Learning Resources at Middle School

The learning resource teacher collaborates with subject teachers to help students achieve their personal potential. Levels of support vary by need. Some students benefit from help with organization, time management, study skills, and specific subject support, while others require special support or enrichment. Learning resource teachers also implement Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for some students.
