Service Delivery Model

שירותי תמיכה מבחוץ

Informed by each child's individual interests and needs within the framework of our well-established curriculum, JCDS engages students in rigorous, responsive and differentiated learning. Our student services teams work with individual students in and out of the classroom to help manage both academic and behavioral challenges. In keeping with our proactive school culture, Student Services supports classroom teachers in the development and implementation of classroom curriculum and structure that supports a variety of learning styles. Student services also communicates with parents to keep them informed about their child's experience in and outside of the classroom.

"Two of our children have received wonderful support from Student Services at JCDS; one for a language-based learning challenge, and the other for issues of organization and completion of assignments. The learning specialists have been both professional and helpful, and they have really helped our children succeed in school and feel good about themselves and their education."
