Beach Channel High School
The Instructional Support Service Department at Beach Channel High School, under the supervision of Candace Lee, is dedicated to providing a quality education for students and offers classes in all required subject areas that can lead to a regular high school diploma. In addition, the following special programs are offered:
The "Academy" is a program for selected students who are functioning significantly below grade level. These courses concentrate on the development of reading, writing, and math skills, utilizing direct instruction techniques. Student progress is assessed each year in order to appropriately plan future placement.
Instructional Support Services is committed to the concept of providing an educational program for all students in the least restrictive environment. Students who are mandated for academic mainstreaming are placed into general education classes as appropriate. We currently have five integrated classes in the areas of Skills Streaming, Communication Arts, American History, and mathematics that utilize a team teaching approach.
Resource Room is designed for students who require academic support. Resource Room teachers provide individualized and small group instruction utilizing specific learning strategies.
The Transition Program over a four-year period offers students and their parents the opportunity to explore career options and the world of work. Through the monitoring and updating of each student's transitional portfolio, students develop the skills necessary to achieve employment and or post secondary education, community integration and independent living.
