Learning Enrichment

Our three Learning Enrichment (LE) teachers work closely with the teachers, counselors, and parents to ensure that ISHRs students’ academic needs are supported. The program offers a range of services including consultation with classroom teachers, evaluations, observations, in-class support and/or small group instruction. The LE program is designed to serve a small number of students in need of academic assistance or with mild learning disabilities. Students come into the Learning Enrichment Program through a recommendation from a previous school, an IEP, or a referral from a classroom teacher. A teacher referral begins the process to establish an individual education plan of support for the student.
