Reaching Our Cognitive Keystones
The ROCK program is designed to provide academic support and effective learning strategies for students with slight learning differences. The ROCK staff provides classroom support for ELA, Math, and Reading. For secondary students, a ROCK elective is offered for additional support in any subject.
To be considered for the ROCK program, an academic evaluation and an IRI (Informal Reading Inventory) along with a current Student Service Plan (SSP) must be prepared and reviewed by the ROCK committee. The committee will meet with parents to discuss and implement the student's service plan (SSP).
Students under the ROCK program are offered additional support in the classroom. This service includes, but is not limited to, weekly reading groups, one-on-one support in the general classroom (different from tutoring) to be determined by the student's academic needs and based on teacher's recommendation.
Students under the ROCK program will receive academic monitoring. This service includes, but is not limited to, grade checks and accountability, accommodated learning, communication with students, parents, and teachers about academic progress.
Upon entering the program, a ROCK meeting is conducted with parents and students to discuss classroom and home expectations and define an achievable academic goal(s) that will help the student achieve academic success in the classroom and at home.
