Special Education

The Special Education program includes the Resource Specialist.

The Resource Specialist Program is for students with average or above average abilities who have discrepancies between ability and academic levels as defined by law. The majority of the student's day is spent in the regular program. The Resource Specialist provides consultation to parents and regular staff members in areas such as assessment, curriculum and classroom management.

Eligibility for Special Education classes is determined by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team.
