Special Education Department

Our Speical Education departments works with students who have a wide range of special needs and disabilities. Our specially-trained teachers create and apply appropriate curricula and assign activities that are specific to each student’s abilities and needs. Special education teachers involve themselves in each student’s academic and behavioral development.

We assist in developing Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for each individual student. The Individualized Education Program is designed to develop individual goals for the student and is specific to the student’s abilities and needs. Our special education teachers review the IEP with the child’s parents, general education teachers, and school administrators. We work very closely with parents to keep you updated on your child's performance throught the ARD process and make recommendations to promote learning in the home.
