Special Education Programs
Special education teachers provide assistance in academic and social
areas for students with special needs. Special education needs are met
using inclusion rooms, where a special education teacher is in the
classroom with the regular teacher during core class instruction time,
offering increased teacher support for the classroom. Students may also
meet with special education teachers for one-on-one instruction.
