Initially all residents attend the private school on White Fields’ campus. The residents are assessed in core subject areas of reading and math. Afterwards, they are provided with a specialized curriculum that meets their academic needs. While attending school on campus, the residents work on social, behavior management, academic skills and remedial skills training when necessary. The school follows the United States Department of Education Common Core guidelines.
One of the goals for each resident is to be able to attend public school. The residents are evaluated by Deer Creek for special education services, when that is determined to be appropriate, prior to their enrolling. The identification and subsequent development of an Individualized Education Program allows the residents consistent support in the public school environment in academics and behavior support as well as provides necessary modifications and accommodations in the classroom.
