Learning Diversity Policy
It is expected that all students at IBS will experience positive and productive learning environment where strengths are emphasized. IBS approach to learning for all students is based on the modern common core state standards and emphasis on the four principles of good practice: affirming identity and building self-esteem; valuing prior knowledge; scaffolding and extending learning .
<p>IBS Student Learning Diversity Group (SLDG) supports the notion that with proper skill training, strategies and individual support, students with mild learning diversities can accommodate in our classes. The student’s potential, the parents’ expectations, the school’s abilities and facilities must all be considered carefully in planning for a best fit approach for inclusion into IBS learning environment.
Parents/legal guardians are viewed by IBS as full partners in the educational process and they must be fully committed to support the school’s decision in special educational plans or outside interventions required for their child.
