ELL & Student Support Services

Furthering Access and Inclusion

KAS has a diverse student body with various learning profiles. Teachers and professional staff create learning opportunities and experiences for all students to have access to and be successful with the curriculum. Our Student Support Team includes teachers, specialists, and administrators who support access and inclusion through a collaborative, team-based approach and differentiation, ensuring that we meet students where they are.

Social & Emotional Learning

Social and emotional learning (SEL) and wellness are vital to student growth and development. Our dedicated team of five full-time counselors plays an integral role in the development of our students. Our counselors serve as role models for the school in forming trusting relationships by supporting students, teachers, and parents in a variety of situations that may involve social and emotional growth, behavior management, and personal relationships. SEL is integrated into our classrooms through lessons, curriculum building, wellness programs, and 1:1 and small group counseling.

English Language Learner (ELL) Support

The ELL program is designed to provide a learning environment that is safe, supportive, and structured, and enables students to gain the necessary language skills to transition successfully into the main subject classes at KAS. The focus is developing the 4 domains of language learning: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Depending on the above factors, students are placed into an appropriate class with the least restrictive environment.


Learning Support

Our team of learning support teachers and assistants provide academic supports that vary based on student needs. Learning supports include push in support in the classroom, small group or 1:1 pull out instruction, 1:1 teaching assistants, and modified curriculum.

Contracted Services

Our Student Support Team extends beyond KAS faculty and staff. To ensure students have the support and access they need, we contract as needed with specialists including an Educational Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Psychiatrist, Speech Therapist, and Occupational Therapist.
