Special Education Services

Special education services are based on the individual needs of a student through the Individual Education Plan (IEP) developed by a team of professionals including the parents and the student. Services are delivered in the least restrictive environment (LRE), with the level depending on the needs of the students. The continuum of special education services ranges from the general classroom, pull-out,self-contained, private placement, and home bound services.
