Our Mission

Advanced Technology Academy's department of special education is committed to providing individualized educational programs for each student with disabilities through partnership and collaboration with parents, students, and school staff to provide a learning environment that allows all of our students with disabilities to reach their full potential and to help prepare them for success in life. Our supports and services are provided in the most inclusive and least restricted environment setting for our students with disabilities, which is the general education setting with their peers. All of the individualized education programs created and implemented at Advanced Technology Academy work in accordance with and adhere to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
