Academic Support Rooms
In the Academic Support Room (ASR) students are provided with additional targeted instruction for core academic areas such as math, reading, and writing with a special education staff. An ASR classroom at Spero Academy may have up to 8 students and is similar to a pull-out resource room one might find in another school district. Alternative curriculum may be used or the general education curriculum may be modified for students in this classroom.
Accommodations may also be made for students in order to access the general education curriculum. Some students who are tracking academically may be served in an ASR classroom if they require additional support in the area of social/emotional and behavioral skills. The student population in an ASR classroom has met special education eligibility criteria to receive specialized instruction.

In the Personalized Learning Support (PLS) classroom settings, students work in a more restrictive classroom placement with one special education licensed teacher and additional support staff for up to 8 students. The PLS classroom setting is designed for students working on basic communication skills, functional academic skills, fine and gross motor mastery or for students who are tracking academically but require additional supports in the area of social skills and emotional /behavioral supports. The student population has met special education eligibility criteria to receive specialized instruction.
