Guidance Program

ICCS provides a full-time guidance counselor.  The counselor is available to students, parents, and teachers.  The counselor works with students individually or in groups to help overcome social, emotional or academic problems.  The counselor is also available to consult with parents.  The counselor can be reached by calling the school office at 433-3497.  Parental permission is not required for a student to see the counselor.

Safe and Drug-Free School Program

ICCS participates in the SAFE and DRUG-FREE SCHOOL PROGRAM offered by CPSB. This program is overseen by the SAPE coordinator with assistance from teachers and volunteers who strive to educate children in the area of substance abuse prevention. Local law enforcement agencies, through DARE (Drug Awareness Resistance Education), provide 5th and 7th graders with additional educational opportunities.

Individual Special Needs

ICCS offers a Resource Program that provides special needs students with individualized educational opportunities. Students who qualify for Resource must have an IDEA academic classification through private assessment or by the Calcasieu Parish School System’s Assessment Team. If eligible, students receive an individualized plan for the provision of special education. Each plan describes goals and expectations for each student with specific special education services based on their assessment/evaluation results. The school also places students in regular classes using accommodations as deemed appropriate by the School Building Level Committee (SBLC). Comprehensive written documentation of a student’s disability by a licensed professional is required at the time of registration.

  • Student Personal Assistants/Tutors
    Professionals contracted by parents through approved agencies are permitted with administrative approval. Students seeking approval must provide documented evidence of significant need in order to acquire these services.

At the present time, the Calcasieu Parish School System provides the following programs to ICCS students who have met eligibility criteria:

  • Speech / Hearing – CPSB provides Speech Therapy and Hearing Itinerants for students meeting all criteria. Speech services are provided for ICCS students on campus on a weekly basis.
  • Title I – This program aims to help students in the areas of math and reading. Itinerant teachers meet with qualifying students in grades 1 – 5 whose residence is located in a Title I public school district.
  • SPARK – Seeking Purposeful Analytical Realistic Knowledge is an off-campus program for gifted and talented students (grades 1 – 5) that meets weekly at a designated off-campus Calcasieu Parish School.
