Resource Room Teacher Services

Students who are classified by CSE may receive resource room services. Resource room programs shall be used to supplement classroom instruction of students with disabilities. Each student with a disability receiving services shall receive a minimum of three hours of instruction per week or more with a SWD certified teacher. Instructional groups in a resource room program shall not exceed five students per teacher and be clustered based on similarity of individual needs. Students may be grouped based on the levels of academic or educational achievement and learning characteristics, levels of social or physical development, or management needs of the students.

Rome City School District Resource Room teachers address the student's needs as per their IEP goals. They also practice strategies to promote student learning such as pre-teaching vocabulary and concepts, scaffolding knowledge, using graphic organizer and other effective learning strategies. The resource room teacher services are designed to focus on the student's disability and are not a tutoring session to help with class assignments and homework. The resource room teacher can also consult with the general education teachers to assist with program modifications within the classroom for the student.

Resource Room teachers often work with specific teams at Staley and Strough. Some teams have a co taught environment where they collaborate day to day. We try to be group the RR teacher with 1-2 grades at RFA. Resource support is mandatory and students have the period/time built into their day.
