Top 5 accommodations that appear on an SST

  1. Seating by the teacher
  2. Reduced length of assignments (usually in math)
  3. Extended time to complete assignments/exams
  4. Teacher prompting to turn in assignments
  5. Teacher to verify that the student has filled out his/her agenda

Please consider implementing one or more of these items, if needed, prior to an SST/504.

LHS/PHS Summer School

High School summer school, and SDC, will be held on our campus this summer. Summer school rooms to be used will be in the 6th grade wing only (507, 508, 509, 510, 701 and 702). The summer session will run for 6 weeks, starting the second week in June.

We will need to make some arrangements with the classroom teachers to safeguard your items, take inventory, etc.

Summer school will be using our chromebooks as well, so Krystal and I will take inventory prior to the summer session. Summer school will be responsible for any damages/replacements.
