Scholar Support

We want to support all of our students while recognizing the unique abilities, experiences, and needs of all scholars. Learn more about how we’re providing special education scholars and non-native speakers the resources they need to thrive.

Momentum Academy provides special education services to eligible students under federal, state and local regulations. Students receive specially designed direct services in order to progress toward annual short- and long-term, educationally relevant goals. These are outlined by the student’s Individualized Education Plan or Individualized Accommodation Plan.

ELL Education Team

The ELL team vows to utilize knowledge and service provided to the homeroom teachers by the ELL team about their students and best ELL practices. Our belief is that collaboration between experts in content with a student focus will create a streamlined and holistic approach to each child’s learning needs.

Gifted Education Program

Gifted students are defined in Section 162.675, RSMo as “students who exhibit precocious development of mental capacity and learning potential as determined by competent professional evaluation to the extent that continued educational growth and stimulation could best be served by an academic environment beyond that offered through a standard grade-level curriculum.”

Momentum Academy follows guidelines for gifted identification required by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, looking at multiple criteria to determine if gifted education services are needed.   Additional information on Missouri Gifted Education can be found here.

Addressing Family Concerns – Complaint & Resolution Procedure

Momentum Academy is committed to maintaining a strong partnership and ongoing dialogue between its teachers, staff, our scholars and their families. If you have a concern about a school policy, academic grade, discipline decision, or anything else, we welcome your input and encourage you to contact the appropriate staff member at the school.

See the Parent Complaint Form starting on page 35 of the Family Handbook

 

Parent Complaint Form

Name(Required)
Email(Required)
Please let us know what's on your mind. Have a question for us? Ask away.
Resolution Process Step 1: Contact Staff Member involved. If a parent has an issue or concern, the first step towards resolving the issue should be to contact the staff member involved by phone or email. The staff member and parent will then discuss the issue to reach a resolution that satisfies both parties. Step 2: Written Complaint sent to Principal. If the issue is not resolved by step 1, the parents’ next step is to write a letter to the principal or use the “Parent Complaint Form” to explain the issue. The principal may take up to ten days to investigate the situation and will then send a written decision to the parent. The parent should copy the Regional Director of Operations on the complaint form. Step 3: Written Complaint Sent to the Board Chairperson. If the parent is unsatisfied with the principal’s decision, the parent may write a letter to the Board Chairperson or use the “Parent Complaint Form” to explain the issue. The Board Chairperson may take up to ten business days to investigate and reach a decision. The Board Chairperson will then send a written decision to the parent within 10 business days of receiving the letter or form. Please note that the Board Chairperson will not respond to complaints that have not gone through steps 1-3.
