Learning Resource Center
Teach every child according to his way.
— Proverbs 22:6
Our Learning Resource Center is available in the Lower Division and Upper Division
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) at Denver JDS focuses on the inclusion of students with mild to moderate disabilities through the provision of remediation and support. The program aims to provide support for students and teachers to help create an environment where all individuals feel successful. Learning specialists coach and collaborate with faculty to implement appropriate strategies, accommodations, and modifications.
In the Lower Division students in grades K-5 are supported through classroom push-in and pull-out support. Students engage in small group systematic literacy instruction with frequent academic progress monitoring. Teachers collaborate with our LRC team to adapt, modify, and scaffold class assignments and information. The LRC also partners with parents and encourages frequent communication.
In the Upper Division students in grades six through 12 are supported through classroom push-in and pull-out support. Students meet with the LRC team not only to learn the skills necessary to be a successful student at Denver JDS, but also to be successful in future academics. Students learn organization, reading and writing skills in addition to interacting with peers and faculty in an appropriate manner. It is the goal of the LRC to work with teachers and parents to ensure that each student is successful.
