Regular Class Modification

The regular class teacher may modify the educational program to meet the students needs. These modifications are usually the result of consultations with the parents, school psychologist, a special education teacher, and/or other members of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team.

Regular Class with Related Services

Language/Speech/Hearing Therapy.  The language and speech handicapped student has a communication problem involving his/her speaking, hearing, or overall language skills. The district makes available individual or small group therapy for articulation and language development.

Adapted Physical Education

Adapted Physical Education is an instructional program designed for individuals with exceptional needs. Students may be eligible for this specialized instruction as determined by various assessment instruments. Services are provided by a credentialed Adapted Physical Education Specialist.

Itinerant Teacher for the Hearing and Visually Impaired

Some hearing impaired and visually impaired students attend regular classes with an itinerant teacher providing support services according to the child's needs as determined in the IEP.

Resource Specialist Program

Resource Specialists provide instruction and services for those students whose needs have been identified in an IEP and who are assigned to the regular classroom for a majority of the school day. The Resource Specialist Program may serve students representing a variety of handicapping conditions whose educational needs can be appropriately addressed within this part-time setting.

Special Class

Special classes are situated on regular campuses and are designed to meet the specific educational needs of students with learning, language, emotional, or physical problems. A students placed in one of these self-contained settings may be mainstreamed for one or more regular classes as appropriate. Students who demonstrate the ability to participate for more than half of the school day in regular classes would then be eligible to transfer to the less restrictive Resource Specialist Program.
