The mission of the Mecklenburg Area
Catholic Schools' Learning Support Program is to identify and facilitate
a successful learning environment for each student experiencing
learning difficulties in the classroom. At St. Gabriel, we believe that
every student deserves to reach their full potential. Some students may
require assistance beyond the classroom to meet that potential. The St.
Gabriel Learning Support Team is a part of the MACS program and is made
up of three Learning Support Teachers who are specially trained in
working with specific learning needs. This group strives to provide
support to the student, the teacher and the parents. Grades K-3 are
. Grades 2, 3, and 4 are supported by Mrs. Aimee Reap, M.Ed. Grades 4 & 5 are supported by
Mrs. Molly Kelly, M.Ed.
The Learning Support Program operates in
conjunction with the St. Gabriel Student Assistance Team
(SAT).Classroom teachers, specials teachers and parents may refer
students to the Student Assistance Team (SAT). Concerns may include
academic, behavioral, social, medical or other issues such as attention,
speech articulation, language processing, motor skills, handwriting,
etc. At that time, a SAT consisting of an administrator, counselor, and
Learning Support teacher will be formed for that student. The team works
with the teacher and/or the teacher and parent to develop strategies
and interventions that address any concerns that are interfering with
school success. Services may include:
Consultation with the teacher and/or parent
Evaluation of the child's current
status which may include but is not limited to: classwork, school
records, academic assessments
Referral for further comprehensive evaluations
Development of an individual Accommodation Plan for children diagnosed with a specific learning disability
