All students identified with special needs that have an active IEP receive vital encouragement and academic support through this department. Identified students are assigned to a special education teacher who acts as a case manager. The case manager tracks student progress, arranges for annual meetings and evaluations, and helps to implement each student's individual educational plan. In addition, to the maximum extent reasonably possible, all special needs students receive instruction in the general education curriculum with modifications and accommodations as needed.
