Special Education

  • Students with disabilities are served through a variety of courses and support systems at Como Park High School. Resource periods are offered for students with hearing impairments, learning disabilities, behavioral disabilities, and development cognitive disabilities. Co-Taught classes provide students with disabilities the opportunity to take mainstream classes with their non-disabled peers and the support of a special education instruction at their own pace. For specific information in planning your student's program, it is best to contact the case manager the spring before they will start at Como and throughout the school year.
