Remedial Program

Lakeland-Andover School provides remedial programs in all academic areas for students working below grade level.  Specialized classes are often designed for one-on-one instruction as needed.  Additionally, we have a Wilson Reading Specialist who evaluates all students recommended and works individually with those who would benefit by individualized sessions for supplemental spelling and reading instruction.

Transition Planning and Senior Preparation

In preparation for graduation, Sophomores and Juniors begin exploring further education and career options.  Emphasis is placed on evaluating the interest, academic skill status and life skills of each student, as well as including parental and teacher input, and comparing the student's level of performance with criteria required to enter selected post-secondary choices.  At this level, students will take interest inventories and are offered the opportunity to take the ASVAB.

Senior year students participate in Sr. Prep which instructs them in job searches, further education, life skills and independent living skills.  This class allows students the opportunity to access college visits, application completion for colleges, trade schools and employment. Referrals to offices of Social Services and interviews with the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation for funding for continuing education and/or job training, is also offered.  Guest speakers from the students' desired professions will also contribute to the learning experience.
