Learning Policies

1. DaySpring will make every effort to meet the needs of our students using our Learning Support Program. We use screeners to determine a child’s strengths and weaknesses.

 

2. Students who are determined to have unusual academic, speech, behavioral needs or concerns with fine or gross motor control will need to be evaluated by our learning support team. Those students will be accommodated according to the availability on the learning support schedule.

 

3. Students who are experiencing developmental delays (ie delays in speech and language, behavior, or motor function) MUST be evaluated by a licensed school psychologist or the Ministry of Education Special Services before beginning school. Parents MUST provide copies of ALL reports from psychologists, doctors, or therapists relative to such delays to the school upon registration.

 

4. Students who are already attending DaySpring whose teachers have indicated that they are experiencing speech delays or whose teachers have observed disruptive, repetitive, self-injurious or other concerning behaviors, MUST be evaluated by a licensed school psychologist or the Ministry of Education Special Services within three months of it being brought to the parents attention in order to continue as a student with Dayspring. Parents who delay in pursuing evaluations will cause the school not to be able to meet the child’s needs and therefore will be asked to leave until the evaluation is complete.

 

**Fees for students experiencing delays are tiered based on student’s needs for support. Please see the school fee schedule for more information
