In order to be eligible for LSS, a student
referral is submitted to the learning support teacher for review
by the student's study team. Information will be gathered about
the student through teacher and parent observation, in-house diagnostic
assessment or an outside referral for testing. Following the referral
process, the student study team will determine whether the student
qualifies for learning support services.
