Special Education programs in the district serve students from the severely handicapped to gifted. Students are placed in the least restrictive environment as determined by their I.E.P. (Individualized Education Plan). Many are mainstreamed into regular classrooms; others receive help in resource and self-contained classrooms. Related services include speech therapy, physical/occupational therapy, psychological services, psychosocial rehabilitation and homebound instruction as needed. Programs for gifted and talented students are provided for qualified 5th-12th grade students. Our goal is to facilitate a quality experience for all students in all activities related to their educational program.
