Study Support

Study Support provides a variety of assistance to students including tutoring and helping with monitoring academic progress. Placement in this program is based on assessment of student needs by the Study Support Department. All students who are enrolled must have current Psycho-Educational testing on file. Students in Study Support meet one period per day.

Any student who has pscyho-educational testing on file has access to the SSD page on PowerSchool Learning under the "Extras" tab. Since not every student is in contact with the Study Support teachers on a daily basis, important information and answers to most questions can be found on this site. Students and parents will find information on the following topics- Accommodations in the SPX classroom, Updating testing, Requesting accommodations on ACT or College Board, Accommodations on Final Exams and Senior information.

Please contact Ms. Dena Peck and Mr. Todd Stewart at studysupport@spx.org using your SPX email if you or your student:

  1. Has Psycho-Educational testing and needs accommodations.
  2. Thinks Psycho-Educational testing is needed.
  3. Is struggling and would like assistance.
  4. Need to have teachers fill out teacher forms for testing. Please do not give them to the individual teachers.

Any student who has psycho-educational testing on file and has been using accommodations on a regular basis can request accommodations on standardized tests administered by ACT or College Board (PSAT, SAT, AP testing). Detailed information is available on the SSD page of PowerSchool Learning. Be aware that ACT and College Board are two separate companies and have different procedures and deadlines for their requests. Requests can not be made until the student/parent has a completed Google Form, submitted a signed parental consent form and provided all documentation that will be sent with the request (in electronic form). In order for SPX to make the deadlines set by College Board and ACT, the student/parent must meet the SPX Submission Deadline. Below are the deadlines for both College Board (CB) and ACT

SPX keeps testing for one year after the student has graduated or has left the school. After that year, if the student or parents have not picked up the testing, it will be shredded.

Anyone who needs a letter or documentation from SPX for college or another school, must request that information by the last school day in April. Please contact Ms. Peck (dpeck@spx.org) and state exactly what the college is requesting along with an address, email, or fax number. The end of the school year is very stressful for everyone. Please contact the support program at your college once you are accepted to determine if you need any documentation from SPX and request it early. All requests must be made during the school year. No requests will be done during the summer.
