The Supported Study Skills program is a specialized instructional program for students with disabilities.
Students receive individualized instruction in reading, writing, oral language and/or math.
They may also receive support with organization, behavior/social skills and/or study skills.
The focus of the program is to help students understand their abilities and needs and to improve their academic skills so that they may become more independent in their learning.
Students typically take a full course load of mainstream classes with a block of Supportive Studies on A days, B days, or both.
Grading for Supported Studies is based on a daily rubric focused on skill work, study skills/organization, preparation, behavior, and task completion.
Students receive .5 elective credit per semester for successful completion of Supported Studies.
