academic services overview
The TIS community embraces individual ways of learning and is committed to supporting children in an inclusive classroom with additional supports. The professionals in Academic Services collaborate with parents and faculty members to create student-centered learning plans, which guide teachers' instruction and increases students' application of learning skills. These plans are designed to increase student opportunity to show mastery of content through multiple means.
When it has been determined that a student can benefit from academic accommodations such as extended time, visual aids, enrichment, or a modified workload, Academic Services works with teachers to implement these plans. Additionally, this department provides remedial and enrichment opportunities for students Elementary-High School. This can take the form of meeting individually or in small groups with students, or mentoring students after school.
