The Student Services Office works to facilitate the process of academic support for students with disabilities. The supports and adjustments that are provided at St. Paul’s School are determined on an individual basis after review of a student’s educational evaluation. To request supports parents should contact Mrs. Amanda Duplantier at firstname.lastname@example.org or extension 1943 to learn more about the initial process and instructions for submitting appropriate documentation. Once a student has an Academic Adjustment Plan established it will follow the student from year to year.
There are times when students may have medical conditions that the teachers and staff should be made aware of. If your student has a current medical condition that you believe the teachers need to be made aware of please contact Mrs. Duplantier. With doctor’s documentation we can share with teachers the necessary information that may help them when working with your student.
Temporary Medical Accommodations
If a student has an injury that is non-permanent (concussion, injury requiring crutches, cast, wheelchair, etc.), temporary support can be put into place to help the student adjust. Some temporary supports may include a caddy pass to receive assistance carrying school materials or temporary adjustments in the classroom. To begin this process please contact Mrs. Duplantier and have a copy of the doctor’s documentation regarding the injury and limitations.
ACT Special Testing
If a student has a documented disability they may be eligible for ACT testing accommodations. ACT accommodations are different from the in class supports students may receive. ACT evaluates a variety of medical and school documents to determine if a student is eligible for ACT accommodations. All requests for ACT accommodations must be requested by the ACT set deadlines.

Please be advised that Special Testing at Saint Paul’s is offered during the following ACT approved testing windows below. Students will be tested during their elective periods as available. Students will receive a copy of their testing schedule and must report to the assigned room at the appropriate date and time.
