Special Education

How Does Special Education Work at WMEP?


The FAIR School K-12 has staff members licensed to provide special education and related services for those students who meet criteria and have special education needs. Staff work with parents/guardians, students, teachers, administration and appropriate outside agencies to develop the best individualized plan for success.


WMEP provides a full range of educational service alternatives. All students with disabilities are provided the special instruction and services which are appropriate to their needs. The following is representative of WMEP’s method of providing the special education services for the identified pupils, sites available at which service may occur, and instruction and related services available.


Appropriate program alternatives to meet the special education needs, goals, and objectives of a pupil are determined on an individual basis. Choice of specific program alternatives are based on the pupil’s current levels of performance, pupil special education needs, goals, and objectives, and must be written in the Individual Education Plan (IEP). Program alternatives are comprised of the type of services provided, the setting in which services occur, and the amount of time and frequency in which special education services occur. A pupil may receive special education services in more than one alternative based on the IEP.
