At the high school level, we use a variety of approaches to support our at-risk students. We combine SETSS (Special Education Teacher Support Services) with a range of specialized supports and schedules for students who have unique needs.
In our middle schools, the special education supports and structures are continually evolving so we cater more effectively to our diverse communities and the specific needs of each incoming class. We utilize a robust Integrated Co-teaching (ICT) model paired with individualized supports that we adapt as students transition from 5th to 8th grade.
At the elementary school level, our primary model for special education is Integrated Co-teaching (ICT), which means there are two teachers in every classroom. One is a general education teacher and one is a certified special education teacher.
It’s up to us as adults to meet [the students] where they are and have them develop the skills that they need.
