What is the Resource Classroom?
The Resource Classroom is for students who need special instruction in an individualized or small group setting for a portion of the day, as defined by the student’s IEP (Individual Education Plan).
Students come or are pulled to the resource classroom for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, they come to access educational materials in the areas of: Reading, Mathematics, and Writing, in a manner that better suits their learning styles and capabilities.
Students come to the Resource Classroom to be better able to focus and take in the material previously taught or to take in new information at the student’s pace.
The Resource Classroom has about a maximum ratio of five students to one teacher. This heightened individualized attention helps students focus better, be more engaged, and meet their educational goals.
