  14. Learning Center Service Model • Idea began in 2000 with the introduction of collaborative models of instruction • Learning Centers started to be put in to place in school around 2004 • Part of a tiered system of instruction • Support in the core classroom • Support/instruction in the learning center • Instruction in a special education classroom only

  15. Learning Center Service Model • Pros • Allows students to spend the most time possible in their classroom with core instruction • Students are part of the school population • They have a homeroom classroom • Allows students the most amount of time possible with nondisabled peers • Allows for flexible grouping based on student needs • More support or less • Specific explicit instruction in a skill area

  16. Learning Center Service Model Pros cont. • Allows for ongoing progress monitoring by two teachers or more • Creates an environment where all students feel welcome not just those who receive special education services and begins to dissolve the social stigma attached to “being a special education student”.

  17. Learning Center Service Model • Challenges • Scheduling • Collaboration • Communication • Parent/Caregiver concerns • Requires more staff management skills • Staff Training • Understanding-staff, students and community

  18. Goals for the Future • That the services PLESD is able to offer continue to grow. (Long Term) • 2 Learning Centers per site • Expanded levels of student and teacher support • Ability provide Speech and Language Services • The County does a spectacular job but there are limits to how we can integrate their staff into our support schedules. • Increase support for students on the Autism Spectrum • Support at each school site

  19. Goals for the Future • Increased training for teachers and paraprofessional (Short Term) • That staff and the community will have a greater understanding of what Special Education Services are and how they affect students. (Short Term) • They are not Special Education Students. • They are PLUMAS LAKE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT STUDENTS who receive special education services.
