The Kittatinny Regional School District Board of Education has approved curriculum for the district's multiple disabilities, learning/language disabilities and resource center programs of study. Students are expected to meet the goals and objectives as outlined in their Individual Educational Program as they address proficiencies within the established courses of study. Unless the Child Study Team has approved modified objectives or an alteration in course content in the IEP, students must meet course objectives.
In an in-class resource program, the student shall be provided modifications to the instructional strategies, testing procedures or other specialized instruction to access the general college preparatory curriculum in accordance with the student's IEP. An in-class resource program shall be provided in the student's general education class at the same time as the rest of the class. A student receiving an in-class resource program or in-class program of supplementary instruction shall be included in activities such as group discussion, special projects, field trips and other regular class activities as deemed appropriate in the student's IEP. In-class resource is provided via team teaching across a variety of general education subjects such as science, language arts, social studies and mathematics.
Pull Out Resource
In a pull-out replacement resource program, the general college preparatory education curriculum and the instructional strategies may be modified based on the student's IEP. The resource program teacher shall have the primary instructional responsibility for the student.
A special class program shall serve the students who have similar intensive educational, behavioral and other needs related to their disabilities in accordance with their individual education programs. Placement in a special class program shall occur when the IEP team determines that the nature and severity of the student's disability is such that no other school-based program will meet the student's needs. Special class programs shall offer instruction in the core curriculum content standards unless the IEP specifies a modified curriculum due to the nature or severity of the student's disability.
Our LLD Model
The LLD program targets the needs of students with learning disabilities who require intensive instruction in an atmosphere that offers small group and individualized instruction with a classroom teacher and at least one instructional paraprofessional. Students are provided instruction in areas such as history, language arts, science, mathematics, job and occupational training, study skills and adaptive physical education.
