Mary Lou McCauley
Tabernacle Resource Program
This course is for students of Tabernacle School who have been accepted into the Resource Program. The purpose of this course is to provide academic support for children experiencing difficulty with one or more academic areas. Resource is offered to students from kindergarten through eighth grade.
Enrollment in Resource
Students may be enrolled in the Resource program through recommendation by parents, teachers or administrators. If a student is referred to Resource, but has no known prior difficulty, assessments are administered to ascertain possible avenues of learning difficulty. From these assessments, the Resource director will determine areas of strengths and weaknesses, what classroom accommodations might be indicated, what skills need to be enhanced, and possible referrals for continued assessment.
Students who are accepted into the Resource program will meet with the Resource director and a schedule will be created. Once a student becomes part of the Resource program, parents are encouraged to contact the Resource director at any time with particular concerns that need to be addressed. Conferences may be conducted to meet with all teachers, parents, principal and Resource director.
Accommodation plans are drawn up by the Resource director and shared with all teachers. Accommodations include, but are not limited to, the following:
extended testing time
assistance with organization
aid with expression of written work
Parents of students with recognized learning disabilities are encouraged to contact the school and make an appointment with the Resource director
The cost for the Resource program is $900 a year. This may be broken down into monthly payments at the request of the parent.
