Guided Studies

The Guided Studies program provides services to students requiring intensive attention and support. In addition to learning strategies and time management skills, this program provides individual support including remediation and the development and monitoring of classroom accommodations. Guided Studies instructors maintain frequent parent contact, receive daily grades, progress reports, report cards, and deficiency reports, and are responsible for teacher collaboration and contact. They also monitor a student’s need for a daily conference period and classroom accommodations.
