Carolyn Levet - Principal
The Language Arts Lab consists of alternative language arts classes
for qualifying students whose reading, grammar, writing, spelling, and
comprehension of language are significantly below expected growth,
despite their average or above average intelligence.
It is the mission of the V.O.L. Language Arts Lab to call on
ourselves, in Christ's message of love, to honor and value students
with varying learning styles. The program provides an avenue which
enables students to grow to higher standards spiritually, morally,
emotionally, intellectually, socially, and physically. In the Language
Arts Lab we have an opportunity to further individualize the tenets of
the Visitation of Our Lady Catholic School mission statement,
philosophy, and objectives, particularly those regarding the whole
child and the differing developmental or learning needs of children.
The screening process for acceptance into the Language Arts Lab
includes consideration of the following:
There is an additional charge for participation in the Language Arts
Lab and is contingent on space availability.
Students are instructed according to their learning differences,
literacy deficits, and grade placement in the seven components of the
Basic Language Skills Development standards. Those components are:
These components are further classified and aligned with the
Archdiocesan Standards Based Education Program.
The Language Arts Lab is not a special education program and was not
developed according to Louisiana Bulletin 1508 guidelines.
Individualized Educational Plans (IEP's) are not developed for
participation students. Students in the program need to be able to
function successfully with reasonable adjustments in their standard
classes for non-language arts subjects. It is at the sole discretion of
the principal to determine the on-going nature and extent of
adjustments. The principal also reserves the right to ask a student to
withdraw if a more appropriate learning environment is needed.
Non Discrimination Policy: Visitation does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, national and ethnic origin in the admissions process or in the administration of its educational policies.
