Special Ed

The Special Education Department serves students who, due to a disability or other impairment, have been determined eligible for an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The goal of the department is to provide students educational opportunities to maximize their instructional capabilities through a full range of services intended to meet the individual needs of students. Parental participation is a key element of the department's teaching approach. It is Special Education's desire to work with parents and students to help students achieve their goals. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our office.

Case Managers

The case manager is also a teacher in the department. Some students with special needs may have a case manager who is employed by the District and is not on campus full-time. If that is the situation, there will be two names listed. The teacher is the on-campus contact.
