Testing Accommodations for Grades 6-11
Testing acccommodations are available for appropriately diagnosed students with professional recommendations for isolated testing, extended time, oral testing, or alternative testing formats. Appropriate documentation for an y and all alternative testing is necessary. Students must register for testing services through the Student Services department. All testing services must be provided by St. Luke’s faculty or staff. There is no additional charge for isolated testing. Extended time testing must be prearranged through Student Services and a fee of $10.00 per test will be assessed. A fee of $35.00 is assessed for each oral test administered. Other formats may require an assessment of $50 per test. Students or parents needing additional information regarding alternative classroom testing services should contact the appropriate grade level counselor. Alternative testing requires advance notice in order for the necessary preparations to be made.
Students seeking testing accommodations for national standardized testing (PLAN, PSAT, ACT, SAT I, SAT II, or AP) should see the grade level counselor for further information regarding eligibility, registration forms and fees. These requests should be completed in the spring of a student’s sophomore year.
Evaluation Forms for Psycho-educational Testing
Psycho-educational evaluation forms issued from an outside provider for teacher’s observations must be processed through the grade level counselor. Parents should bring the forms directly to the counselor, not the teacher. School personnel will complete these psycho-educational forms based upon their specific observations. These forms will be completed in a timely manner and will be treated as confidential school records. The school will return observation forms directly to the clinician and not to the parents. Parents will need to allow a minimum of 2 weeks for the process to be completed.
Is your child struggling as a reader or have you been told your child has Dyslexia?
St. Luke’s may be the answer you have been searching for. Students who are struggling with the foundational skills needed to become a fluent reader, may need specialized instruction. Our Learning Specialist is trained in Orton-Gillingham-a (multi-sensory instructional approach), Language Essentials for teachers of Reading and Spelling, and strategy instruction. While St. Luke’s is well known for our rigorous college preparatory curriculum, most people may not know that some of our most successful students needed a little extra help in the early years to get where they are today.
Have you ever thought or been told your child…
- is intelligent, and articulate but unable to read, write, or spell at grade level?
- is “not trying hard enough”, or is a daydreamer?
- despite being a struggling reader your child is gifted in the arts, sports or building things?
- seems to have difficulty with vision, yet eye exams don’t reveal a problem?
- is confused by letters, numbers, words, sequences, or verbal explanations?
