K-12 Instructional Programs
No two students are the same. Each student and each student’s abilities are different. The purpose of the Special Education Service Center-Instruction is to assist special education teachers and District staff in working collaboratively with students and families to develop and implement the Individualized Education Program that is tailored to students’ individualized needs. Although it was once believed that students with disabilities should be taught together in separate settings apart from other children, we now know that all students benefit when all students are educated together in integrated classrooms and schools.
