Holmes Student Support Services
The 2019-20 Support Services Staff at Holmes (TENTATIVELY) consists of:
ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING TEACHER (ELL)
The school psychologist is qualified to administer individual tests and interpret the results to parents/guardians. Psychologists recommend courses of action to school personnel and parents/guardians when special education is indicated.
SCHOOL SOCIAL WORKER
The school social worker helps provide a tie between home and school when serious adjustment problems occur. Social workers can also provide recommendations for outside therapy or placement if necessary.
Special Education services are available to students who quality under the individuals with Disabilities in Education Act. Contact your child’s counselor if you believe your child may actually be sufferingfrom a disability. An Individualized Educational Planning Committee, which always includes a parent/guardian, plans the services and program of study once a disability has been identified through testing.
