Special Education

Special Education

The Learning Support program is designed to meet the academic and social/emotional needs of exceptional students. Improving basic reading, English, math, science, and social studies is emphasized. Instructional modifications and adaptations are designed to meet the individual’s educational needs. The IEP may include a behavior management program to develop, increase, and/or maintain skills that will enhance an individual’s opportunity for learning.
 
In order to meet the criteria for special education consideration, a multidisciplinary team convenes to complete a Comprehensive Evaluation and to provide recommendations to an Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team. The IEP Team will determine the student’s eligibility and if the student is determined to need specially designed instruction, the IEP team will provide the exceptional student the most appropriate educational program and placement. An exceptional student’s program and placement is re-evaluated every two years in order to assure the most appropriate educational program and placement.
