Program Description

The Special Needs Department provides assessment, services, placement, and support to students. An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) facilitates entry into these specialized programs. If you have questions about any program, please contact your child’s school psychologist or administrator.
Specialized Academic Instruction is the primary service delivery model of the district. SAI includes small group and individualized special education supports provided by a credentialed special education teacher. SAI may be provided in the general education setting, a special education classroom for a portion of the day, or extended placement in a self-contained special education classroom for the majority of the day.
The Special Needs Department is dedicated to working with our school site staff, parents and the community to provide the support that will enable students in special education to learn in the least restrictive environment. We are committed to identifying, locating and assessing all students who may have disabilities, and providing appropriate support and/or related services to those students determined by an educational evaluation.
