Reaching Our Cognitive Keystones
The R.O.C.K. program is designed to provide academic support and effective learning strategies for students with slight learning differences. The R.O.C.K. staff provides classroom support for E.L.A., Math, and Reading. For Secondary students, a R.O.C.K. elective is offered for additional support in any subject.
To be considered for the R.O.C.K. program, an academic evaluation and an IRI (informal reading inventory) along with a current Student Service Plan (S.S.P.) must be prepared and reviewed by the R.O.C.K. committee. The committee will then meet with Parents to discuss and implement the student's service plan (S.S.P.).
Students under the R.O.C.K. 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 recommendation.
Students under the R.O.C.K. 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 R.O.C.K. meeting is conducted with parents and student to discuss classroom and home expectations and define an achievable academic goal(s) that will help the student reach academic success in the classroom and at home.
