Learning Support Services
The St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School Learning Specialists provide individualized instruction for students in Grades 1st-8th. In Grades 1st-3rd, services are delivered both in the classroom and as a pullout program that provides additional small-group instruction. Students in Grades 4th-8th report to the Learning Specialist at a designated time for instruction.
In order to be considered for accommodations, the student must submit to her grade counselor recommendations and test data from a psychoeducational evaluator within three years of the request. If the student qualifies, accommodations include but are not limited to the following: extended time on tests and exams (no extended time on quizzes, papers and projects), the opportunity to photocopy another student’s notes, and preferential classroom seating. Extended time refers to an extra 30 minutes per test and 45 minutes per exam. The eligible student must ask the teacher two or more days in advance of the test/exam. Extended time is an option in Advanced Placement classes or on AP exams when and if the College Board grants it. Extended Time on tests is administered before school from 7:10 a.m. 7: 40 a.m. in a designated classroom.
