Janie's Classroom is a remote, Clark County School District educational center located on the first floor of the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, Nevada's only non-profit pediatric treatment center. Students and parents will receive support and assistance with a variety of CCSD programs and services while they are receiving treatment for a cancer diagnosis. Our classroom teacher is a K-8 licensed educator and will be working from the classroom daily to help our student patients meet their educational goals. Check out some of the services and supports Janie's classroom will be providing. Parents and students are encouraged to submit a request for services for these, and any other educational supports.
Tutoring & Lessons
Many times our students visit the clinic for extended periods of time. During those visits, our staff is able to provide tutoring and lessons created to meet student's individual educational needs. Students will receive in-person assistance with classroom assignments, tutoring on new or difficult concepts, and access to engaging and exciting standards-based learning activities.
Many of our students will qualify for distance education or homebound services as part of their treatment plan. Their education shouldn't suffer just because they cannot attend in person. Our classroom will provide access and assistance to online programs so that our students can continue their education from both home and the clinc.
Students diagnosed with cancer in their high school years pose a risk of becoming credit deficient during the course of their treatment. Classroom staff at the clinic is available to assist those students with a personalized credit retrieval plan so that they can finish their course of study to receive their high school diploma.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer most families can easily become overwhelmed by all the necessary applications for support and educational services. The classroom staff is able to facilitate the application process for homebound and related supplemental services.
IEP and 504 Assistance
Understanding a child's IEP or 504 can be a daunting task. Children who are placed on homebound services may need additional special education services in the form of these legal documents. Understanding the accommodations and modifications to their child's education is essential for parents to be able to support their child's educational needs.
Infinite Campus and Canvas
CCSD provides access to several online educational programs. Infinite Campus and Canvas are two essential programs that both parents and students should access. Checking these portals regularly ensures that students are receiving important district announcements as well as general classroom information and grades. Canvas is the platform CCSD will be using for all Covid-19 distance learning applications.
Do I "enroll" my child in Janie's Classroom instead of their regular home school?
No. Janie's Classroom is a supplemental service center designed to help your child meet the needs and expectations of their current schooling situation. Students must be enrolled in a CCSD school or homebound program to receive services through Janie's Classroom.
Is my child required to attend Janie's Classroom?
No. In fact, we understand that some children may want to attend during one treatment session and not another. Janie's Classroom is flexible and designed to serve your child when they are ready. Needs change constantly and we understand. We're here for your family when you need us.
Can my other children receive services from Janie's Classroom?
Unfortunately at this time, Janie's Classroom is only able to assist children undergoing treatment at the Cure 4 The Kids cancer clinic. However, classroom staff is able to help parents with questions concerning other supports that may be available for all CCSD students, regardless of their health status.
Does my child need an appointment to receive services?
Appointments are extremely helpful to ensure that the classroom staff is available to assist your child during their treatment or infusion session. The classroom will be offering various online and prerecorded lessons for students who are unable to attend in person or who are unable to make an appointment. Check our calendar of events to see new activites that are posted each month.
How do I make an appointment with Janie's Classroom?
Please submit a request for services form and a classroom staff member will contact you as soon as possible to discuss your needs and set necessary appointments.
