Programs and Services

  • All schools have some special education and related services; however, not all services are available at every school. The following is a list of special education services available in every elementary, middle and senior high school:

    • Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD)

    Deaf/Hard of Hearing (DHH) 

    • Visually Impaired (VI)

    • Classroom support for students with less severe Emotional or Behavioral Disorders (EBD)

    • Speech and languages services (SL)

    • Consultation for Other Health Disability/Traumatic Brain Injury/Physical Impairment: special and general education teachers work with district-wide staff to provide appropriate services for individual students

    • Developmental Delay (Elementary) (DD)

    Students with more significant needs, especially in the areas of Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (DCD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Emotional or Behavioral Disorders (EBD), may require services through a specialized program for at least part of the school day. If the IEP has more than 180 service minutes of academic support per day for any of these three areas, the child will be assigned to a school in their area that offers these services. Parents can work with their child’s IEP team to learn more about appropriate school choices.
