Each student has an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) which delineates the specifics of academic and nonacademic instruction. Nonacademic instruction provides self-help strategies for attention and behavior issues as well as social, organizational and study skills. At any time during the year with the parent’s approval and knowledge, the IEP team and parent can meet to discuss concerns or changes needed to improve the student’s IEP. At the end of every school year, an annual IEP will be written for the upcoming new school year indicating areas of progress, strengths and needs. Please contact me if you have misplaced your child’s IEP and I will be glad to send you a copy.
Learning and Developmental Goals
The purpose of a special education classroom is to provide specialized, small group instruction for students to help them achieve success in reading, math, and writing as well as nonacademic instruction. Learning and instructional goals are specified in the Individual Education Plan. The IEP contains goals for areas of concern including reading comprehension, basic reading skills, oral and written language, and mathematics. All students participate in the general education curriculum for social studies and science at their grade level. A copy of the student's accommodations is provided to appropriate general education teachers with an explanation of accommodations and the areas of responsibility of the general education teacher.
