The Learning Center (L.C.) is a special education program catering to students from grade two to grade 12. The goal of the program is to provide services needed for each student to reach his/her potential.
How does Union School’s Learning Center help?
- We work with each student to develop his/her social, emotional and academic skills.
- Learn by doing, students use all modalities to learn including art, singing, acting, writing, and reading.
- Teach each student at the level he/she is ready to learn.
- Foster higher-level thinking.
- Allocate time to individualize the instruction for each student to reinforce particular skills in reading, writing, or math according to the student’s needs (study skills and resource periods).
How is a student placed?
Based on aPsycho Education Evaluation, the student is placed in the least restricted environment possible.
Full time/Part time:
- The student is engaged in learning the same content areas and objectives as mainstream in a parallel setting in the Learning Center where instructions are individualized or in small groups.
- Students receive academic instruction modified to their level of performance to meet their needs based on the Psycho-Education Evaluation.
Part Time General program with accommodations:
Students attend the mainstream program receiving support and accommodation specified in their Individualized Education Plan (I.E.P).
