Ivy Academia's Office of Student Support Services works with families to ensure that every student gets the interventions and services necessary to succeed academically, socially, and in the world of work.


Student Support Services includes Section 504 plans, Individualized Education Plans (IEP) for students with disabilities, and Student Success and Progress Teams (SSPT) plans.

If you have any questions about your child's progress academically, behaviorally or emotionally, please contact your child's teacher or teachers. Set up a conversation or conference with your child's teacher so that he/she knows about any difficulties that your child is experiencing so that the teacher(s) can develop strategies to help your child.
