• Resource Room

    I'm glad you're here!

    In conjunction with other professional staff, the elementary resource room teachers in Wantagh strive to provide an atmosphere that will encourage children to advocate for themselves in the learning environment. 
    As case managers, the resource room teachers are responsible for the implementation of each student's IEP, including testing accommodations, program modifications, and monitoring progress.   
    In addition to addressing each student's IEP goals, the following skills may be addressed in the elementary resource room setting:
    • Teach strategies that will enable children to access the general education curriculum
    • Support the curriculum based on individual student needs
    • Prepare for content area tests
    • Prepare and practice for state assessments
