Reitz Memorial High School Resource Program
Reitz Memorial High School recognizes the special needs of our students with diagnosed disabilities, and within limits, attempts to meet those needs. Reitz Memorial High School accepts students with disabilities who have demonstrated the ability to achieve successfully in the regular classroom setting with accommodations combined with limited support in the resource setting. Parents of students with disabilities are required to discuss their child’s special needs and provide documentation (Individualized Education Plan, IEP, or 504 Plan as well as recent psychological evaluation demonstrating eligibility) with the Assistant Principal for Curriculum and Instruction and the Resource Teacher upon making application.
Reitz Memorial High School employs a licensed special education teacher and a teaching assistant to provide resource level support to students in the resource program. Students may enroll in a special resource class to receive support with homework completion, organizational and study strategies, test preparation, test accommodations, etc. This non-credit course replaces an elective. It is possible for a student to enroll in the special resource course every semester for four years and earn the required credits to graduate. Students may also utilize the resource room as appropriate for test accommodations.
Reitz Memorial High School receives consultant services from itinerant teachers and other related service providers (speech and language teacher, occupational therapist, physical therapist) from the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation for students who have been identified and determined eligible for special education services. The Reitz Memorial High School resource teacher collaborates with itinerant teachers and related service providers to coordinate services for students identified with disabilities. Reitz Memorial High School also coordinates services for students determined eligible for accommodations according to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
