Who does the CATS Center support?
The CATS center also supports all Wildcats who need academic support in time management, studying techniques, peer tutoring, organizational skills and self-advocacy.
Joining the Caseload
Families setting up accommodations may contact the Director of CATS to establish a timeline and academic support plan for your individual student's needs. Families should be prepared to provide supporting documentation to substantiate this request. Acceptable forms of documentation include, but are not limited to:
- Psychoeducational Evaluation
- Neuropsychological Evaluation
- Psychiatric Evaluation
- Medical Documentation
Timeline to Accommodations:
Following the receipt of documentation, with input from the student and family, the CATS Director will compose and implement a Learning Profile for the student. This accommodation plan will be approved in a meeting with the student and family prior to being distributed to the student's current teachers.
**Accommodation requests for AP exams must be completed by mid-January per the CollegeBoard.**
