What We Do:

How We Do It:

  • Coordinate tutorial services for students who legally are unable to attend school

  • Supervise the implementation of the Section 504 process

  • Coordinate the ACS District screening program for new students entering the school system

  • Ensure the implementation of the Part 200 Regulations of the Commissioner of Education for all students with disabilities

  • Assist the teacher to identify and understand student characteristics which influence learning styles and outcomes

  • Provide information needed by the school in planning suitable education for individuals and for groups of students

  • Give direct assistance to students in adjusting to learning situations, understanding themselves in relation to education, and in planning and preparing for adult living

  • Assist parents to understand and support the student's progress in school

  • Encourage and assist in the school's efforts to provide for full development of every student

In order to address the needs of our students, each school has an Instructional Student Support Team (ISST). Membership on this team varies with the grade level of the school, however, the following people will be found on one or more of these teams:

  • Principal

  • School Nurse

  • School Counselor

  • Remedial Reading Teacher

  • School Psychologist

  • Special Education Teacher

  • Social Worker

  • Speech and Language Therapist

Regular meetings of the ISST are scheduled throughout the year by the building principals.
