Resource Support

Academic Support

Carroll Lutheran School has a full-time Resource Teacher on staff certifies in special education and reading. Her role is to assist the teachers to meet the instructional needs of the students and to work directly with students who need intervention services. The resource teacher assesses students, as appropriate, to collect data to recommend placement for reading groups. In addition, the resource teacher interfaces with public school and supports families during the special education process.


Accelerated Learning

School-Based Interventions

Carroll Lutheran School meets the needs of our gifted and talented students in a variety of ways:

  • Early admittance to Kindergarten
    Normally, children must be 5 years of age by Sept. 1 in order to enter a kindergarten program in the state of Maryland.  However, a 4-year-old who turns 5 between Sept. 2 and Dec. 1 may qualify for early admittance if they demonstrate the necessary academic skills and maturation.
  • Grade Level Indicator
    Children in the lower elementary grades are placed in reading and math groups such as above level, on grade level, and below grade level.  Above grade level multiage groupings may exist.
  • Enrichment
    Children who exhibit strong ability and interest in content areas are provided opportunities to extend their learning through centers or choice activities.
  • Reading or math with a higher grade level
    Students who have mastered the skills at their particular grade level move to the next grade to receive instruction (content acceleration).  They return to their age-appropriate grade for the rest of their schedule.
  • Advanced Academic Placement
    Middle school students may also qualify for high school credited classes.
  • Skip a Grade
    A child who demonstrates maturity and mastery of skills in all subject areas is given consideration for skipping a grade if the child and parent agree.
