Exceptional Children

Exceptional Children (EC)

Carolina International School holds that all students have the right to a quality education appropriate to their needs and abilities.  It is the goal of the Exceptional Children (EC) program at CIS to develop and implement instructional and socialization strategies for students with identified special needs, either within the regular classroom push-in or though one-on-one or small group remediation.

Every student identified with a disability will be provided with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) specifying goals, level of service and ancillary services, and the least restrictive placement.  Parents will be fully informed of their rights, procedures, and responsibilities under special education law.

For more information, contact Deborah Lamm,  704-455-3847, ext. 9546.

Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and Personal Education Plan (PEP)

Students will develop – in coordination with his/her teacher(s) – an Individual Learning Plan (ILP). This emphasizes student learning and communication styles, as well as documents their growth within subject areas. The PEP is developed by the classroom teacher with other related teachers, administrators, and resource staff. The PEP is intended to serve as a roadmap for the student’s future success, and includes student and parent/guardian involvement in its formation. PEP’s are reviewed periodically to assess the effectiveness of the plan.

​For more information, contact your student's teacher or teaching team.
