    Meeting Students Where They Are 

    We're committed to helping each student become an independent and successful learner. Our learning environment emphasizes compassion and growth, so students are free to focus on their learning and our teachers and staff are committed to helping each student reach their individual potential. Learn more about our special education programs below.   
    LifeSkills Program

    This program serves children with severe disabilities who must concentrate on learning the basic skills for daily living rather than standard academics. Learning in this program might include basic language and communications skills, self-care and hygiene, safety, daily living activities and basic academics. Life Skills classes are available from kindergarten to age 21.
    Social Emotionally/Behavior Support Program

     This program serves students with identified behavior or social emotional needs who qualify for supports that are designed to develop skills necessary for classroom learning. The program integrates students into the general education setting while providing behavior management and social emotional support based on their individual education plans. 
    For students whose behavior disabilities are severe, the elementary, middle and high schools have classrooms for full-day instruction centered on behavior management. As students become capable of managing behaviors, they begin to transition into general education classrooms for periods of time.
