Student Handbook  (click on this link for a copy of the student handbook)

Ivy Creek School (ICS) serves the needs of students from various regional school districts who have been identified through the special education process as emotionally disabled and in need of a specialized separate public day school placement.  Located in the Albemarle High School, Jack Jouett Middle School, and Greer Elementary School complex, Ivy Creek School has the capability of serving 75 students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. 

Our Students Needs

Our students have difficulty managing their feelings, controlling their behavior, and making good choices, all of which tend to impact their academic performance.  They may appear angry, depressed, anxious, unsure of themselves, and/or in need of significant support and understanding.  In order to function successfully in school, it is essential for our students to learn to manage emotions and behaviors, and respond to social expectations appropriately

What We Do Together

Ivy Creek staff work with the student and those adults involved with him/her towards finding acceptable alternatives and learn new skills and attitudes.  To help our students accomplish these challenging tasks, we provide students with a safe and nurturing environment to develop positive and lasting relationships while working on improving their academic performance.  These supports include a variety of counseling methods, well designed instruction, assorted and engaging learning opportunities, and enrichment activities which work in concert to provide academic, vocational and functional life skills.  These and other methods are used to help our students develop a sense of themselves as competent learners, capable of interacting with others successfully at school, work, home, and in their communities.
