Academic Inclusion Office

Under the direction of Mrs. Juanita Chauvin, the Office of Academic Support Services provides academic guidance and assistance to students with learning differences. Since parents are the primary educators of their children, the Office of Academic Support Services works closely with parents to identify their student's areas of strength and areas of academic concern. In addition, the Office of Academic Support Services collaborates with both parents and teachers to create a team approach to meet the learning needs of the student.
