At Cedarwood School, we recognize the importance of meeting the unique academic needs of all of our students. We believe every student deserves an educational plan that is based on the student’s strengths and/or relative weaknesses. Our teachers strive to deliver such a comprehensive curriculum; however, at times a student exhibits a profound exceptional ability in a particular area or may be experiencing some great difficulty with certain skills. The PLUS program is designed to support varying types of student learners enrolled at Cedarwood School.
Teachers, administrators and parents may recommend that students be tested for qualification in the PLUS Program. For more information, please contact the school’s counselor, Kim Readlinger at 985-845-7111 ext. 67

PLUS (Advanced Learning)
This program is designed for those individuals in grades 3-7 who exhibit a high level of exceptionality in the area of English/Language Arts. Mathematics, Art, and Music areas are designed for those students in grades 4-7. Screening for Mathematics, Art and Music areas will be conducted for recommended students in grade 3 during the second semester. Parents will be notified of each recommendation. Each area will be addressed by a teacher who will design a curriculum to enhance the exceptional abilities of the students who meet the criteria for that particular area of study. Some areas will be addressed in the regular classroom setting using differentiated instruction.

PLUS-S (Reading/Writing Support)
In addition to the offerings of enhanced English/Language Arts, Math, art, or music, we will be able to offer, for our 2nd-7th grade students, additional instruction for those students who need unique strategies and support to be effective readers and/or writers. Working in conjunction with the classroom teacher, a faculty member, who has received specialized training in the area of reading and math will work individually or with small groups of students. (The PLUS-Support service is offered at an additional charge)
