Individual Student Needs (ISN)
The Individual Student Needs program provides the students at Catholic High accommodations based on their academic, emotional, and social needs. Students that enter the ISN program can be provided accommodations such as extended time, tests read aloud, modified testing, and other accommodations as defined by the student's disability or academic needs.
The goal of the ISN program is to give students the support and tools they need in order to succeed at Catholic High.
Student accommodations can occur within the classroom setting or within a smaller environment. An Individual Accommodations Plan is developed for each student. Teachers, staff, and administration work together to develop an IAP that will help students succeed both in and out of the classroom.
By implementing the ISN program, Catholic High strives to help all students become confident, self-directed, life long learners.
Students who qualify for the ISN program may have specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADD/ADHD, or sensory issues. Students must present a formal evaluation completed by a physician or educational diagnostician.
