LD and AD/HD Support
In order to receive program services, parents must provide
educational documentation to the Academic Support director and
registrar/ Admissions. Documentation may include
a full psycho-educational evaluation, IEP,
504 Plan, and/or diagnosing information from a physician.
Students with educational documentation can access academic support during their FLEX period or work on their own in a positive learning environment. Direct assistance may include help with organization, planning, grade monitoring, study skills, and/or subject area tutoring.
Students on academic probation may be assigned a directed study period in the Academic Support Center during their FLEX period for direct progress monitoring.
California Scholarship Federation students are available during the day in the library for additional tutoring.
The Academic Support Center director meets with all entering families to create an Academic Support Plan and orient families to program services in August.
