The goal of the Intervention Services Department at Roger Bacon High school is to provide support so that students can be successful in the regular education classroom, meet high school graduation requirements, and be prepared for entry into the work force or college upon graduation. Here are a few of our frequently asked questions.
All students are served in the regular education classroom. That means we don't take them from classes, we go into their classes! This allows for great continuity of learning and for us to work with your child on their assigned work! We provide the following: in class support (clarification, assignment modification, organization), test modifications/supports (outlines for essays, model problem for math, extra time if needed), and small group review of material during flex to name a few.
All students at Roger Bacon take courses required by the State of Ohio for graduation. This includes 4 years of English, 4 years of Math (Including Algebra II), and 3 years of Social Studies and Science. They will also have the opportunity to take a number of electives in English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, and Physical Education. All core classes (english, math, science, and social studies) have 3 levels (College/Career, College Prep, Honors/AP) and your child will be in the level best suited for his or her abilities. All 3 levels meet graduation requirements and prepare the student for college. We cannot make adjustments to the curriculum but can provide support and allowable accommodations to help students meet their full potential.
Your child will get allowable accommodations that are permitted by the State and included in their IEP. This might include extended time, small group, or other accommodations. We will notify you of what accommodations the State does and does not allow so that we can help your child know what to expect.
