In many cases, yes. Saints Peter and Paul School employs a Literary Specialist who, with feedback from homeroom teachers in grades kindergarten through 4 and periodic screenings, is able to identify students needing additional targeted instruction to strengthen reading skills. We utilize a Student Support Team process as recommended by New York State. Students who qualify may receive classroom accommodations through the 504-review process. The process ensures that students identified with learning challenges are provided with appropriate classroom accommodation even when their learning needs may not require direct support services. The Hamburg Central School District may provide direct support services to students as part of the Committee for Special Education process. Saints Peter and Paul School employs a full-time special education coordinator who works closely with families, teachers, and the Hamburg Central School District to provide for the student’s needs. Upon inquiry, a meeting is scheduled with the parents and principal. The special education coordinator will also review the needs of the student. Once the accommodations are identified and the school’s capabilities are assessed, an informed and fair decision can be determined. Please contact Sister Marilyn, principal of Saints Peter and Paul School to discuss your child’s needs, the school’s capabilities to meet them and to develop a plan.
