St. John the Baptist School embraces students with learning differences in a Christ-centered environment. Students are given the accommodations and differentiated learning strategies needed to be successful in the general education classroom. When students need extra support, the resource room offers individual and small group instruction to meet the needs of the individual student.
The staff at St. John the Baptist incorporates multi-sensory learning strategies, movement breaks, and adaptive seating options. These are just a few of the techniques used to help students find success!
The Resource Team has monthly RTI (Response to Intervention) meetings with grade level teachers and administration. During RTI meetings, topics such as student intervention, strategies for struggling learners, and support for general education faculty members are discussed and recorded. Monthly meetings allow for all faculty members to collaborate and work together to closely keep an eye on students who may need extra support.
St. John the Baptist Catholic School employs two full time Resource teachers and a part-time teacher. The staff works closely with the classroom teacher and parents to find the path to success for each student.
