An important component of the SRCS academic program is the Resource Department, which acts as a support team for all parents, students, and teachers and is committed to helping all students attain their potential. Part of helping students succeed individually is recognizing the importance of reading skills; accordingly, the Resource Department is dedicated to helping teachers and administrators assess, diagnose, and instruct students K-6 in reading. The Resource team serves to assist students who are experiencing academic and behavioral difficulties by working alongside the classroom teacher to develop strategies that work for individual students. The department coordinates Student Support Team (SST) meetings with teachers and/or parents allowing everyone the opportunity to provide input toward problem solving.
Beyond the immediate, assistance is also provided in locating outside resources for evaluating behavioral health, emotional health, mental health, learning disabilities, or articulation impairments, and Resource staff act as the liaisons between the school and county for select services and professional development.
