Description of methods and strategies for serving eligible students with disabilities:

Our plan to accommodate students’ special needs is based on an initial determination of the disability or special need involved and a clear knowledge of how to facilitate individual instruction and learning despite the disability/special need. Strategies include: A technology-rich, well-supported learning environment that responds to the unique educational needs of every student and permits students with limited physical abilities to participate as equals, an interesting and inviting physical environment, a teacher who is specialized in Special Education, preferably Spanish bi-lingual, who will also encourage the participation of all participants regardless of achievement levels, a disabled accessible facility, close collaboration with school counselors to ensure that the support provided is appropriate to the needs of each individual student, and the ancillary services aimed at meeting the mental and social welfare needs of all students such as presentations by mental health professionals, practitioners working with adolescents, workshops and seminars in guidance & counseling as well as effective parent involvement strategies and recreational activities.


Description of methods and strategies for serving eligible students with limited English proficiency:

Instruction will be enhanced by the use of hands-on materials, enabling participants to ask and answer questions of the materials themselves and to use the materials as visual aids in conversations. Classrooms will be equipped with a variety of visual and auditory clues such as charts, semantic maps, graphic organizers and pictures. By creating a collaborative peer study group of two to five students, we will be providing for this group of students, a native language support system that enhances learning. The bilingual teacher will also serve as an added resource in this regard.
