The Rockwood School District's Individualized Learning Center is located at the Administrative Annex Building B in Eureka, Missouri. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from school. Enrollment is limited to 90 students ages 16 to 21. Students attend class from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The program utilizes a pass/fail grade system with 75% and above passing.
Rockwood School District curriculum and graduation requirements apply. Teacher to student ratio is 1:15. Computer technology is utilized in all the classrooms. A multi-sensory approach to reaching individual student needs is practiced. Classes offered are based on student need.
Students are able to participate in extracurricular programs if they meet Missouri State requirements. Transportation to the I.L.C. or to extracurricular activities is not provided by Rockwood School District. The school year schedule is the same starting, ending, holiday, and snow day schedule as all other Rockwood schools. Staff development days may differ. For a complete listing of such dates, see the school calendar page. Students are permitted to graduate at their home school. The I.L.C. has a "Completion Ceremony" for those students with enough credits to graduate. All Rockwood R-6 policies and procedures are adhered to.
The Individualized Learning Center is committed to providing alternative learning opportunities for students who aspire to enrich themselves through academic success and character development.
The ILC strives to be a safe, student-centered environment where students and teachers share responsibility for learning as students prepare for graduation, develop good character, and attain valuable life skills. To increase student motivation and appreciation of learning, ILC staff will collaborate to address the unique needs of individual students and design preemptive interventions to facilitate student success and growth.
It is our intent to encourage students to learn through their ability to process and transfer information in meaningful ways by the development of critical-thinking and problem solving skills. It is through the combined teaching of strong, basic academic skills and progressive innovative approaches to learning that we see student attain a higher standard of achievement.
As an extension to the core academic skills, our school will emphasize character development through participation in an extended instructional and service learning program designed to encourage healthy interpersonal skills. We realize the need to be flexible in setting goals, and we are able to reevaluate and rest more practical goals if there is a greater probability for success.
