Here you will find answers to commonly asked questions about MOSAIC. If you do not see the answer to your question please feel free to email the Team Leader @ firstname.lastname@example.org
How does my child get into MOSAIC?
Students enrolled in Humble ISD who receive special education support services can move from their high school campus to the MOSAIC program following their senior year of high school if they have met all the state academic credit requirements and finished their state testing. The MOSAIC program is a program that your child will be Ard'ed to at the end of their senior year.
What steps do I need to take to move my child to MOSAIC?
When it is your child's senior year in high school it is time to start planning for the transfer to MOSAIC. The first step is to contact your child's case manager or the campus Transition Specialist and request a Person Centered Planning Meeting (PCP) be scheduled. During this meeting we will make a plan for your child's transition. Following the PCP meeting an ARD will be scheduled to move placement for the following year to MOSAIC.
What is a PCP meeting?
A Person Centered Planning Meeting is a time for all the important people in your child's life to come together to develop a life plan for your child. This is NOT an ARD and not a legal process like an ARD. You are able to invite anyone to the meeting including relatives, friends, teachers, and anyone who is important to the child. During the meeting we use large posters hanging around the room so everyone in attendance can see what is discussed. During a PCP meeting you evaluate the goals for the future, barriers to the those goals and make a plan to work on while in MOSAIC. Each students MOSAIC plan is completely individualized by their own PCP. Typically a PCP meeting can last from about 1 to 2 hours.
Can my child attend only the Lonestar portion of the program?
We do have some students who spend their entire day at Lonestar College but they are working on more than just attending college. We find that all of our students need support with learning how to be an adult and therefore provide community based learning opportunities to practice these skills. For instance, a student may enroll in three classes at Lonestar but spend the entire day at school. While they are not in the class they are working with our teachers to sign up for services at the college, learning how to have a bank account, learning to drive, learning to schedule their own Dr appointment, etc. We use their time to teach them all the skills they need to be a independent adult while ensuring they are doing what they need to do to be successful at college. Every student's college schedule looks different and it based on their goals and college plan.
Can my student still go to Lonestar College even if they are NOT taking a college credit course?
Yes - we have three "tracks" for students who want to go to college.
First track is for students who want to take actual college classes to earn a certificate or associates degree.
Second track is for students who want to take continuing ed classes such as pottery, photography, karate or weight lifting.
Third track is for students who want to go college but will not take any class but rather participate in the social aspect of program and participate in college activities. These students day is planned for and monitored by the teachers and paras that are assigned to the college campus.
