Special Services Department

  • Special education services are support services for students with an exceptionality. In order for a student to be eligible for special education services, the student must first be determined to have an exceptionality and need specialized instruction. After a student has been identified as needing additional support from the classroom teacher to meet expectations, supplemental intensified instruction is attempted to help the student learn. The teacher keeps track of student progress. If the teacher, parent or someone else in the school decides a child needs additional support, a team meets to consider the student’s needs in the area of concern.
