Exceptional Children's Program

Exceptional Children's Program

Students with IEPs, 504 plans, FBAs, and BIPs will have the opportunity to use the accommodations as stated in their documents. Professional therapists are allowed on both campuses to provide services as needed. Students will also receive weekly pull-out services with our experienced resource educators. Mrs. Ali Lovano, the owner of Be the Change Behavior, has partnered with Kid Stars Rising to assist us with writing behavior plans and coaching our teachers, arming us with strategies to support our students with Autism, Aspergers, ADD & ADHD, ODD, and other special learning disabilities. With the assistance of these professionals and resources, we can prepare our exceptional children to find long-term academic, behavioral, and social success in their lives inside and outside of the classroom.

Class Dojo

Class Dojo

Class Dojo will be used this year as one of our primary forms of communication for our Academy. The Principal is a certified Class Dojo Mentor and will guide the information shared in your child's classroom and on our Kid Stars Rising Christian Learning Academy's School Story. Class Dojo is the fun-named digital platform that works to connect teachers, students, and families in and out of the physical classroom by using a feed of photos and videos as well as messaging. While a photo and video feed from the classroom to parents and guardians is popular these days, and certainly not a unique service, the messaging part is a little more rare. Class Dojo specializes by offering a decent messaging service with built-in translation for up to 35 languages and a rating system for monitoring student progress.
