Experience with Academic Support and Transition @ BHS?
Does anyone have experience with Collaborative Learning Center: Academic Support and Transition at Berkeley High? Our 8th grader has an IEP for dyslexia/adhd and we just discovered that he's been put in this for one of his 9th grade electives. He's getting 3s/4s in school, but has time management issues. I am not sure this class will solve that issue and we would probably prefer him to be able to take electives (which he was excited about) rather than an academic skills course that he may not need. We do plan on supplementing 9th grade with a private executive functioning tutor. I still haven't received any real information about what the class includes, but in the BHS catalog, it's just listed as a weekly class, rather than daily, so I'm confused about ... well, everything. I'd love to hear about any experiences with this and of any families who were able to select NOT to participate. Thanks!
