Learning support offered

the Student Support Team is committed to providing an exceptional education for our student population by utilizing the best practices of SEN identification, informed parental consent, and least restrictive environment
The Student Support Team is aware of the diverse needs of our student population and seeks to use all possible resources to meet this diversity.  The team also strives to support teachers and their work in the classroom by providing services to those students who need extra assistance but cannot receive it in the normal classroom setting. 

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

Students with outstanding talent who perform or show potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age require services or activities that may not be provided to the majority of their class.   Essentially, research tells us that students who are gifted/talented are characterized by three interlocking clusters of ability, these clusters being above average ability, creativity and task commitment.  At CIS, we identify these students by using test score nominations (standardized, formative and summative), teacher referrals, and parental request for testing.  Students must be in the 94th percentile on a nationally normed achievement test and be an extremely high achiever academically, socially and intellectually. The school may request he/she undergo cognitive abilities testing.  
Our procedure for providing for our academically talented/gifted students is to evaluate to assess the students’ needs, provide a challenging and supportive learning environment, observe students responses to curriculum, consult with peers, parents/caregivers, teachers, and community, nominate and screen if appropriate, analyze information, plan appropriate to students’ needs and monitor the continuous cycle.
