Cross Schools utilizes a Multi-level System of Support focusing on high-quality instruction, intervention, and assessment to ensure ALL of our students receive the appropriate level of support in the classroom. Students are able to access additional academic support outside of the classroom on an as-needed referral basis. 

 

Accommodations

“Accommodations are alterations in the way tasks are presented that allow children with learning disabilities to complete the same assignments as other students.  Accommodations do not alter the content of assignments, do not give students an unfair advantage, or in the case of assessments, do not change what a test measures.  They do make it possible for students with a learning disability to show what they know without being impeded by their disability.”- National Center for Learning Disabilities

1.      Extended time for classroom assignments and tests

2.      Oral administration of test directions and or test questions
