Academic needs can be met via peer tutoring, college tutors and on-going individualized teacher instruction. Teachers and staff from the Lamar Department of Special Needs work daily with our students to meet their academic needs. The LSC is equipped with appropriate and updated technology to assist students in recovering credits needed towards graduation. Social and behavioral issues are also addressed through immediate counseling by our LSC administrator, who is a certified counselor. Additional support comes through Communities in School, and referrals to outside providers, when necessary. We also provide evening group sessions for parents, as well as, students. These sessions address issues such as, drug counseling, as well as, emotional and educational support. Attendance issues are addressed by the intentional elimination of transition for most students. Students are permitted to attend some classes based on the individualized performance plan of the course, or the ability to replicate a particular lesson in the setting of the LSC. Attendance is monitored daily and appropriate staff is notified to provide interventions when necessary.
