SERP pORTAL

Welcome to the SERP Portal! JSerra's Student Educational Resource Program (SERP) supports students with documented learning challenges. SERP recognizes the need to provide a learning environment which fosters growth and supports the individual needs of all students. SERP is one segment of an academic support team which encourages and supports collaboration to create an environment in which all work together for the common good of each student.

Learning Ally

Learning Ally, a national nonprofit since 1948, has partnered with those who learn differently to ensure academic and lifelong success. At Learning Ally, the mission is to promote personal achievement when access and reading are barriers to learning by advancing the use of accessible and effective educational solutions.

Learning Ally is your ideal resource for all of this…and more.

For Parents, Learning Ally membership includes a range of parent support services:

  • one-on-one consultations with parent support specialists, each of whom has a child with dyslexia and can help you with the information, insights and options you need
  • exclusive webinars from learning disability experts
  • and guidance on the IEP and 504 processes
For Students, membership provides access to more than 80,000 audiobooks:

  • more than 2,000 VOICEtext titles feature the full printed text that’s highlighted as it’s being read
  • fiction, nonfiction, literature, and textbooks
  • since 1948, hundreds of thousands of Learning Ally members have proven that when reading is a challenge, audiobooks support learning
