How is a student's schedule affected when they participate in SSA?
By participating in SSA, parents are aware that changes in scheduling will be necessary which may result in other off-grade level activities (e.g. specials, lunch, recess). Specials, such as Art, Music, and Physical Education, are all part of the NC Standard Course of Study with Essential Standards in each area. To meet NC General Statutes of a comprehensive education, each student must attend specials even if they are participating in SSA. Schools will address scheduling needs on an individual basis.
