Special Education Services  

The Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities states, "each school district shall ensure that to the maximum extent appropriate; children with disabilities are educated with children who are nondisabled". Programs serving children with learning challenges as well as those with speech/language and other related services needs are available in nearly all buildings. Programs for children with multiple disabilities and for those with emotional/behavioral needs are available in selected buildings.  

A. Collaboration/Consultation Services- Regular Education Classes 

Collaboration/Consultation services focus on special educators and general educators working together to best meet the needs of students with disabilities as well as children who may be "at risk". Each building operates Intervention Assistance Teams to promote cooperative teacher planning, to individualize learning experiences and to effectively integrate resources which would positively impact the child's educational program.  

B. Supplemental Services Teacher (Paraprofessionals) 

The supplemental services teachers provide to classroom teachers supplemental aids and services necessary to enable a student with a disability to receive an appropriate education in the regular classroom environment 

C. Individual/Small Group 

The Individual/Small Group Instruction program provides students with disabilities with a support that helps to increase their opportunity to benefit from regular class placement. This is a supplemental instruction which focuses on assisting students in becoming independent in the "process" of learning using individualized strategies to provide the intervention support and techniques resulting in the growth of the student and/or students.  

D.   Special Class/Resource Room 

The Special Class/Resource Room serves children whose disabilities require a special education program on a part-time basis. Continued participation in the child's regular class activities is encouraged. The Resource Room offers an alternative curriculum which provides a student with a disability with a personalized option that is not offered in the general education program.  

E. Separate Facility  

Separate facilities are, typically, schools outside of the district that is designed specifically for students with disabilities.  

F. Home Instruction  

Home instruction is an individualized education program provided at home to a child with a disability which prevents the child from attending a regular or special education program even with the aid of special transportation.
