If your child has been diagnosed with a learning, emotional, or physical need requiring academic accommodations, please contact Lauren Purcell, Director of Student Services, at email@example.com or 502-814-4338 before the beginning of the 2022–2023 school year. With the start of the new school year, it is important that student accommodation documents are current and accurate.
We must have documentation on file in order to provide accommodations in the classroom. Please refer to the KCD Student-Parent Handbook section on Learning Support for information on eligibility requirements. If testing has not been updated within the past 3-5 years, the summer is a good time to complete the necessary evaluations. The Upper School follows the College Board and ACT guidelines for eligibility, so we must have documentation on file in order to provide accommodations in the classroom.
Lauren Purcell is available to meet individually with families of students receiving accommodations to discuss academic accommodation plans for the coming year. Please contact her if you have any questions or to arrange a meeting.
*If your child has an accommodation plan on file, it will be posted as Learning Profile on their MyKCD profile page under the Progress section before the start of the school year. If there have been any changes to the diagnosis or new evaluations completed, please provide the updated documentation as soon as possible. Please let Ms. Purcell know if you have any questions or are unable to locate your child's accommodation plan on MyKCD.
