Learning Enrichment

Learning Enrichment at The Weber School includes a variety of supports for students with documented learning differences and challenges. The Director of Learning Enrichment and Learning Center faculty work with students to increase their self-advocacy skills, to advance their development as independent learners, and to deepen their understanding of their unique learning profile.

  • Individualized Learning Plan

    For students with a psycho-educational evaluation, an Individualized Learning Plan is developed by the Director of Learning Enrichment based on the results and recommendations outlined in the evaluation. All psycho-educational evaluations must meet the following criteria:
    • The evaluation must be current -- completed within three years of submission to The Weber School and updated at three-year intervals thereafter.
    • The report must include cognitive and achievement measures and be administered by a fully credentialed, licensed evaluator.
  • Individualized Learning Plan Accommodations

    The Individualized Learning Plan outlines the instructional and testing accommodations determined necessary to facilitate student learning and is reviewed as needed to ensure that it accurately reflects student strengths and needs. While The Weber School does not offer a modified curriculum, we can implement the following instructional and testing accommodations, as recommended in a psycho-educational evaluation:
    • Extended time on tests, quizzes, and exams: 50% (time and a half) and if recommended 100% (double time).
    • Use of a personal laptop computer for classroom notes and written composition.
    • Strategic seating within the classroom.
    • Access to teacher notes.
    • Separate testing room as requested.
    Additional accommodations may be offered to students as deemed necessary and reasonable and documented within one’s psycho-educational evaluation.
  • Academic Coaching

    Students in need of more intensive support and monitoring may be assigned an Academic Coach. Academic Coaches are classroom teachers who are highly skilled in study skills instruction, and they guide students in developing study plans and setting academic priorities. Students generally meet with their coach weekly, and should it be determined necessary, a student may be approved for a study hall to better accommodate coaching sessions and to support the student in managing coursework demands.
  • National Standardized Testing Accommodations

    Some students with documented learning needs may also be eligible for accommodations on national standardized exams. To receive accommodations on these exams, an application to the specific testing institution must be submitted. The Director of Learning Enrichment can assist families in submitting these applications. However, it is important to note that all decisions related to a student’s eligibility for accommodations on these types of exams are made by either the College Board or ACT. Students cannot take the ACT, SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, or AP Exams with accommodations without written approval by the specific testing institution governing the test.
