We have many tools available to help students with specific learning needs. The unique adaptability of our curriculum, combined with the one-to-one support that students receive from both their Oak Meadow teacher and their parent/home teacher, often helps students overcome challenges that made learning in a traditional school setting difficult. We also offer a list of resources to assist students with learning executive skills such as time management, organization, and study strategies.
If a student is working below grade level in one or more subjects, accommodations can be made by enrolling the child in different grade levels for different subjects, and putting into place a Learning Plan that details specific modifications to the grade-level curriculum. After a detailed review of the student’s work, prior assessments, and learning needs, specific recommendations are made for curriculum modifications (such as reducing the number or length of assignments, working at a different grade level, dictating written work, or integrating educational support technology). The Oak Meadow Learning Plan is an official school document that becomes part of the student’s permanent record; this allows a student to receive academic credit for an adjusted work load.
If necessary, a Learning Plan is put into place before enrollment to help the student have a successful learning experience. There is no fee for a Learning Plan assessment. If it is determined that a Learning Plan is needed, there is a $300 fee in addition to the tuition.
