Student Support Services
At Jakarta Intercultural School, inclusion is a commitment to welcome, embrace, value, and educate a diverse range of learners.
We believe diversity enriches our community and creates a learning environment that reflects the natural complexity of our world. Inclusion fosters opportunities for all members of our community to grow and thrive. As a community, we develop empathy, compassion, and an evolving perspective as we learn alongside others with different backgrounds and abilities.
JIS can offer places at each grade level to a managed number of students who require support services. Areas of support include: English as an Additional Language (EAL), speech and language services (Elementary and Middle School only), occupational therapy (Elementary School only), academic learning support, classroom guidance, and individual counseling.
The admission of any student with identified needs (language or learning) is determined on a case-by-case basis using multiple sources of information, such as school records, evaluations, Individual Learning Plans, and in some cases, an interview. Admission is contingent on a match between the student's needs and the school’s ability to provide the required support.
Life-centered education for students with moderate to significant learning needs and global developmental delays.
The Student Support Team (SST) is a multidisciplinary group of professionals who meet regularly to develop strategies to assist students who are experiencing academic, social or emotional challenges, to collaborate with teachers and parents on these strategies, and to initiate interventions that address areas of concern.
This team also helps determine admission of applicants, and eligibility and exit criteria for student support services. Students may be referred to the Student Support Team by teachers, parents, and/or counselors if a need is warranted.
Members of the SST may consist of the following:
- Classroom Teacher
- Learning Support Specialist
- EAL Specialist (English as an Additional Language)
- School Psychologist
- Speech and Language Pathologist
- Occupational Therapist
- Principal or Vice Principal
