Is enrollment still open for the 2022-2023 school year?
What is the application process?
- a review of the application form and all documents submitted with the application;
- a review of the student's informal screening, if necessary; and
- a determination by the Admissions Team as to whether the child demonstrates an unexpected reading delay and can be classified as having the characteristics of dyslexia/SLD, if not previously diagnosed or qualified through an Individual Education Plan (IEP, 504 Plan, and/or recent public/private psychological evaluation by a licensed school psychologist within the past 1-3 years).
Who is a Qualified Student?
- are South Carolina residents;
- have a primary diagnosis of dyslexia/SLD through a formal public or private evaluation, if they have been evaluated;
- if they have not been formally evaluated, have the characteristics of dyslexia through an assessment/screener administered after the application is received; and/or
- have demonstrated need for such specific services through (but not limited to) documentation in an IEP, 504 plan with dyslexia/SLD as the primary eligibility, or documentation from previous schools that the student is not meeting grade-specific standards in literacy.
How will I be notified if my child is a Qualified Student and/or will be enrolled at Lakes and Bridges?
What documents are required to be submitted with the application form?
- a copy of any recent psychological evaluation, speech/language evaluation, and/or medical records concerning conditions that might affect your child's ability to learn (if your child has never been evaluated, there is a space to note this in the application form);
- a copy of the most recent Individual Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan, if applicable;
- a copy of your child's final report card from last school year; and
- a copy of your child's most recent report card from the current school year.
