ALE Quick Guide for Parents
The ALE program is designed to assist your child in becoming successful in the general classroom as well as at home and public life.
ALE is intended for the child who needs extra help with academics and/or behavior management.
Your child receives the same academic studies as his/her grade level peers while in ALE.
If your child currently receives any specialty services (OT, Speech, SpEd, Counseling, etc.) he/she will continue to receive them while in ALE.
While in ALE, your child will continue to take part in the daily specialty classes during the ALE assigned period.
He/She will have daily access to school based mental health services.
He/She will participate in special activities (field trips, presentations, etc.) just as other students.
ALE students also have lunch and recess just as any other student. Generally, our lunch is from 12:00-12:30 and recess is from 12:30-1:00. You are welcome to eat lunch with your child if you wish!
As a student in ALE, your child will have the added benefit of more intense and individualized program planning designed to meet your child’s individual needs.
Communication is critical, so please check your child’s folder and sign/return documents DAILY. This is our way of knowing that you know how your child is functioning in the classroom.
