Special Education

Supporting our VIPs

Each of our school sites has a Learning Center, which provides individualized support catered to our VIP student needs through scaffolding and differentiation. All VIP students who enter YouthBuild Charter School of California (YCSC) with an IEP or 504 Plan, whether active or expired, are enrolled in the Learning Center for specialized academic instruction. The Learning Center takes place every day during a class period and is taught by a credentialed YCSC teacher. The LC teachers work with the VIPs, counselors and the Special Education Coordinator to move VIP students through the levels of Blooms Taxonomy and explore a variety of methodologies that will best serve the needs of the VIP student. Additionally, the instructor integrates the goals and objectives of the IEP into the lesson. 

Resources for students with IEPs can be found here. If you need additional support, please contact our Special Education Coordinator Angelique McGrue.
