Special Education

Special education services are available to eligible students from ages 3 through 21 who experience disabilities and require specially designed instruction. Individual special education programs are cooperatively developed by an individual education planning (IEP) team which includes parents, teachers, administrators and, when appropriate, other specialists. The IEP team reviews an individual student's functional and academic performance to develop appropriate individual long term goals and short term objectives for the child to achieve during a one-year period. 

Mission
To ensure that all children are successful in school and prepared for adulthood - through the following: collective work on common goals, commitment as a group to address each student’s needs, and operating with open communication and collaboration.

Vision
All students will succeed as we focus on their unique learning styles and the implementation of model educational programs for effective instruction and student growth.

Values

  • Value and respect all students, families, staff, and members of the school community as vital members of a team working in the best interests of students
  • Communication that is informative, timely, and consistent is necessary for student progress
  • Awareness that every adult is a teacher and influences the education of a child
  • High expectations of children, staff, and families are communicated to all parties to ensure students reach their full educational potential
  • Commitment to collaboration fostered by a creative and constructive approach towards problem solving between the members of the student’s team
