*Listed below are a few of the services we provide!
We work with staff and parents to determine classroom accommodations and modifications are appropriate for each student.
While we want our students in as many general ed classes as possible, we recognize that some general education courses may not be an appropriate fit for them, even with modifications. Because of this, we offer personal curriculum classes for students who receive inclusive ed services. Classes we currently offer are: Life Skills Math, English, and Work Skills.
High school can be so much fun when you have a healthy social life! We want our students to get the full high school experience. Our school's athletic director, coaches, directors, and instructors are all committed to include students of all abilities into their programs. Our Inclusive Ed team helps students get involved in whatever way they want to, and provides support to the individuals who run those programs. Sidekicks also provide a lot of social support to our students.
Please see the "Sidekicks" page for information.
We have two full-time paraprofessionals that work specifically with students receiving inclusive education services. They assist in Mrs. Gray's classroom as well as the general ed. classrooms. Paraprofessionals are assigned to specific classes based on the needs of students receiving inclusion services. Paraprofessionals may serve as a one-on-one aid to a student, or may be in the classroom only to assist every once in a while. It all depends on student needs. Teacher and parent feedback as well as student file reviews will determine in what classes paraprofessional support is necessary.
Supported Study Hall
All students receiving inclusion services have a supported study hall. Our team supports students with test prep, homework, and reteaching concepts as necessary.
A "360 Plan" is what we call our in-house IEP (Individualized Education Plan).
Non-Public School Plans
Each student is able to receive ancillary services through Grandville Public Schools. If your student uses any of these services they will receive a "Non-Public School Plan" (NPSP) that details their services. Students who qualify for special education services but do not need any of the above mentioned services from GPS will receive a re-evaluation every three years to ensure they are "in the system" to receive supportive services post-high. GPS will also help with transition planning in the student's senior year.
Michigan Rehabilitation Services
We work closely with Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS). As of this year, students can begin working with MRS as soon as they turn 14-years-old. Mrs. Gray and the parents will discuss if and when to open a case for a student with MRS.
Kent Transition Center
Kent Transition Center in an employ-ability training program. This is a great option that can be explored for students. The process for application will begin in the student's sophomore year.
