Helping Students Through a Special Education Program


The Learning Center (LC) is a special education program catering to students from grade 3 to grade 12. The goal of the program is to provide services needed for each student to reach his/her potential.

How does Union School’s Learning Center provide support?

  • We work with each student to develop his/her social, emotional, and academic skills.
  • Learn by doing: teachers integrate multiple intelligences to accommodate different learning styles.
  • We teach each student at his/her level.
  • We foster higher-level thinking.
  • We allocate time to individualize the instruction for each student to reinforce particular skills in reading, writing, or math according to the student’s needs through study skills and resource periods.

How is a student placed in the Learning Center?

Based on a psycho-educational evaluation, the student is placed in the least restrictive environment possible.


  • With Modification:
    The student is engaged in learning the same content areas and objectives a mainstream in a parallel setting in the Learning Center where instructions are individualized or in small groups.
  • With Adaptation:
    Students receive academic instruction modified to their level of performance to meet their needs based on the Psycho-Educational Evaluation.

Part-Time General Program with Accommodations:
Students attend the mainstream program receiving support and accommodation specified in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
