DISTRICT SUPPORT CENTERS  

Mission

To provide a special education program designed for students who have experienced significant difficulty in more traditional educational settings. Students are supported in their progress through individualized academic instruction while fostering social and emotional growth.

 

Levels of Support


Level 1: Students spend the majority of their school day in the regular classroom with a check-in/check out system (homeroom),frequent consult with classroom teachers, and proactively monitoring academic and behavioral success.
 
 
 Level 2: In addition to the check-in/check-out system, these students also spend additional time in the support center to receive academic and/or behavioral support (1-2 core classes). Some students on this level may require additional in class support from special education staff.
 
 Level 3: In addition to the supports identified in Level 1 and 2, these students spend the majority of the day in the support center with opportunities to be included in their classroom as appropriate (Unified Arts).  These students are always working toward increased inclusion time.
