Children and Adolescent admitted to Hickory Trail Hospital or enrolled in our Adolescent Day Program will receive educational services from a Doctoral-Level teacher in a tutorial model classroom setting. Children admitted to either program do not withdraw from school.
In lieu of the school sending classwork, the Hickory Trail teacher will provide a TEKS based, on grade-level curriculum.
Overview of Educational Services program:
- Students remain enrolled in their current school.
- Your child’s school is notified that your child is receiving medically necessary treatment thereby avoiding any truancy issues.
- Students are coded “Present, not in membership”.
- Dr. Kathleen Giglio, Ed. D. will to be the “Teacher of Record”.
- This alleviates the need for a Hospital/Home-Bound teacher to gather, tutor and return classwork for the student.
- Students participate in a tutorial model education program with a certified teacher to assist them in completing work your school provides or they may participate in an on grade-level TEKS-based curriculum.
- Courses (with modifications as required) that can be completed while at Hickory Trail are as follows:
- Most school will accept attendance and grades; sent at approximately 10-day intervals, the end of a semester or six-week grading period, and at the completion/discharge from the program, from the “Teacher of Record”, ensuring that the students will not lose credits/units upon returning school.
- Schools may, at their discretion, apply course credit for additional classwork completed that may not be listed in the student's current course list.
- Upon Discharge Preparation, Educational Services will work with day hospital staff to complete courses through titration process.
- Upon discharge/completion of the Better Days Wellness Program, students may return to their former school schedule
