Middle School Academic Support

Language Arts and Math Specialists provide opportunities for small group differentiation and support by partnering with each classroom teacher several times per week.  They work with classroom teachers to determine the need for small, flexible groups to help differentiate instruction and best meet the needs of students. These supports can include content-related support, in addition to executive functioning and study skills support.

If a student requires further support, The Middle School Student Support Team (MSST) will meet to discuss how to accommodate the child’s needs throughout the year.

Regular individualized support is offered for students who qualify for a Spanish exemption. The Middle School Support Team determines if a student qualifies based on a variety of criteria.
