Educational Support Services
In accordance to our mission and in recognition of our academic diversity, our Educational Support Services (ESS) teachers partner with classroom teachers, parents, and other professionals in order to ensure students are reaching their full learning potential.
MCS Educational Support Services
Educational Support Services (ESS) at MCS share a vision of inclusion for all students to learn with their peers. ESS teachers work alongside classroom teachers to create and implement interventions to support students’ learning gaps as well as small group and individual instruction to address specific needs.
The MCS Educational Support Services offer:
- Small group instruction
- Individual instruction
- Goal setting
- Monthly review of student needs through the meeting of student success teams
- Referrals for educational evaluations through Muskegon Public Schools
- Speech, Occupational Therapy, and Social Work services provided through Muskegon Public Schools
We also have three staff members here to support and direct social, emotional, and behavioral problems at school. The staff members include a social worker, dean of students, and student advocate. Students are able to take time away from class for breaks or come speak to the ladies in “The Hive” as needed. The students are given the appropriate tools and tricks to help them reach their full potential, not only in class, but in the real world, too.
