Crossroads School admissions process:
Tour: Any individual interested in a tour should contact Crossroads School. A meeting will be arranged with a member of the Crossroads administration team. A brief overview of the school's services and tour of the facility will be given.
Referral: Once a referral from a student's school district is obtained, parents and/or the school district will meet with the Program Director for an initial assessment. During this meeting, the Program Director will review the student's file and explain the various components of Crossroads School in specific relation to that child. If the Program Director, school district and parent deem Crossroads School to be a potential placement, an intake is scheduled.
Intake Screening/Determination: During the intake, the Clinical and Education Directors assess and observe the student in a potential classroom while the parents meet with the Program Director. The purpose of this meeting is for the Program Director to provide information to the parents regarding Crossroad's policies and procedures, communication systems, parent involvement and answer parental questions.
After placement has been determined, Crossroad School works to create a comprehensive student profile that determines the initial educational program for the student. This student profile is created through parent interview, observations and previous assessments and reports. A transition plan is then developed by the Program Director and the parents based on the student's individual needs.
The Crossroads staff will perform formal and informal assessments and begin to develop a positive and trusting relationship with the student. Approximately 6-8 weeks, after placement, the team may meet to develop a new IEP.
