White Clay School accepts both district funded and private pay students. We are presently working with 12 districts in Delaware, Chester and New Castle Counties. Our special education and BCBA specialists on staff review each IEP and base the student's program and Tier Level according to the IEP and the student referral. 90% of our students are place on the Tier 3 Level, in either our Emotional/Behavioral Support or Structured Language Support classrooms.
Tier 3 RTI Classroom Program
Our Tier 3 Intervention programming provide our students with elevated interventions and progress monitoring in language, numeracy, reading, executive function, and behavioral management. After working with the student and assessing strengths and weaknesses, our teachers and specialists design the appropriate Tier 3 programming for your child. Our Tier 2 programming is then added to complete your child's curriculum.
Tier 3 Programming could include the services of such areas of specialty:
Speech and Language Intervention
PCA- part or full time classroom support
Gross Motor Therapy
Transition and Life Skills
Parents are not required to accept the additional Learning Support Plan for their child. However, the school reserves the right to deny admission to the child, if they are not enrolled in the recommended plan or require the parents to sign a waiver requesting an opt-out for this plan.
Tier 2 and Tier 3 Classroom Programs
Our Tier 2 track students are enrolled in our Tier 3 classrooms but require less intensive programming, Tier 3 interventions. Each classroom's curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of each of our learners. This program often times provides the ideal support for those learners who perform better in a smaller environment. It includes our full curriculum behavioral and academic program, with no additional Tier 3 language , academic or therapeutic interventions.
The tuition is calculated according to individual program design.
