Student Support Services
Langley’s Student Support team – which consists of learning, math, and reading specialists, counselors, and the director of student support and social-emotional learning – provides the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral support to help students and their families navigate the joys and challenges of learning and growing up.
Reading & Math Specialists (Kindergarten-Grade 5)
In grades K-2, reading and math specialists provide small-group differentiation for reading and math, with a focus on developing early literacy and math skills in addition to enrichment opportunities. In grades 3-5, these specialists provide curricular reading and math support to teachers and may lead targeted small groups depending on student needs.
Langley’s learning specialists support students across divisions in all academic areas and also provide support and resources around executive functioning. They work closely with teachers to ensure that students have the right tools and strategies to be successful in the classroom, and assist students who may need additional support. The Middle School Learning Center offers a dedicated space for students in grades 6-8 to receive small-group support from a learning specialist. If students have documented learning needs, our learning specialists, along with our director of student support, will work with families to determine the accommodations that Langley can offer.
We believe that students’ academic success is interwoven with their social and emotional health and wellness. In order for our students to reach their academic potential, we do all that we can to ensure that they feel supported, valued, and psychologically healthy. With this in mind, our counselors develop and implement Langley’s REACH curriculum, as well as support students across social and emotional realms, partner with families, teachers, and outside mental health professionals to provide support to students when needed, and assess and address any emotional needs that arise.
Our full-time nurse supports the health and well-being of all students within the community, responding to student illness, injury, and emergency health situations, administering medications, and collaborating with the student support team as needed.
