The amount of time a student is enrolled in a CAS program will depend upon each student. Students that are enrolled in a Level II or Level III CAS program will be assessed annually. The results of the annual testing are shared with parents and principals. Decisions regarding CAS enrollment for the next school year are discussed at that time.
The types of accommodations are based upon each individual student’s educational evaluation. FBA provides standard accommodations through the CAS Learning Lab. Examples of these accommodations may include: extended time on tests/quizzes; reader for lengthy tests/quizzes; quiet learning environment; scribe or laptop.
CAS intervention programs target underlying cognitive and perceptual weaknesses to help students become independent and active learners in the classroom and life. Tutoring provides academic support in specific areas for a short time and does not address the underlying cognitive and perceptual weaknesses of a student.
