Special Education

Special education is instruction specifically designed to address the educational and related developmental needs of children with disabilities.

This includes early intervention services for preschool students starting at age three and services for school age children in grades TK-8.

For students with Individual Education Plans, instruction is based on the core curriculum. The IEP team documents modifications and/or accommodations/ adaptations, teaching strategies, as well as other support systems that may help the student.

Parents of children with disabilities from ages three through twenty-one have specific educational rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). These rights are called procedural safeguards. Individuals serving as surrogate parents and students aged eighteen receiving special education services are also entitled to these rights.
