The Learning Support Team at Granum School works collaboratively to provide inclusive programs and services to students who may be struggling academically, socially or behaviorally. The team is comprised of the Classroom Teacher, Learning Support Teacher, Family School Liaison Counselor and Principal. Together these members discuss and plan the supports necessary to ensure the success of the student. The role of each team member is outlined below:
The Classroom Teacher brings concerns, observations and documentation to the table for discussion. The teacher outlines strategies attempted and reports on student successes and needs.
The Learning Support Teacher, Nick Beer (email@example.com) , assists classroom teachers in identifying student strengths. Assessments are conducted and findings interpreted. Case conferences are organized to share findings and to develop Individual Program Plans (IPPs). Direct support with modifying curriculum in the classroom and small group instruction is provided. The Learning Support Teacher oversees the Later Literacy Program, a 10 week intensive, individual remedial program for students requiring intervention and coordinates referrals for students requiring speech, occupational or physical therapy services.
The Family School Liaison Counselor, Karen Sparkes (firstname.lastname@example.org), counsels children and their families. The counselor facilitates the development of personal and social skills through preventative programs. Community connections and networks are fostered to strengthen ties between home, school and neighborhood. The FSLC also coordinates referrals to outside agencies and/or pediatric assessments. The counselor is the front line person on the threat assessment and post crisis response team.
