SPECIAL EDUCATION SERVICES
SERVE: K-12 students that have been identified as having a disability under the guidelines of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
INDIRECT: The student is in the general education classroom. The special education teacher monitors progress weekly by communicating with the general education teachers. This service is provided when a student is transitioning from special education to the general education classroom. If the student is successful in this transition, they are dismissed from special education.
CO-TEACHING: The student is in the general education literacy/english and/or math class. The special education teacher is in the classroom along with the general education teacher. The teachers plan and teach their class together. The special education teacher is responsible for making sure that the student understands the instruction and that all students complete all assignments.
SELF-CONTAINED: The student will be provided math, literacy/english, science, and social studies in a special education classroom setting. Depending on the ability of the student, they could remain in this classroom all day or may attend some general education classes. The district has four classrooms that are limited to 15 students. They do attend activity classes, such as P.E., art, computer classes, & music, as well as counseling, recess, & lunch with a general education class if they are successful in transitioning to these activities. Each building has access to a washer and dryer, refrigerator, and microwave. The secondary students have access to a stove. This allows students to be involved in daily living skills such as cooking and cleaning. This is provided to enable them to be as independent as their disability will allow them to be when they graduate from high school. All eligible students can participate in Special Olympics.
THERAPY SERVICES: Speech, Occupational, and Physical Therapy services are offered in every building if the student qualifies to receive these services.
