Exceptional education services for each student with disabillities are written into each student"s Individualized Education Program (IEP). Services may be provided in a variety of settings, with the goal being to educate each student in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). That means providing services in the regular classroom environment to the maximum extent possible. While the district continues to expand its full inclusion program, most students with disabilities receive some – and in a few cases, almost all – of their education outside the regular classroom. This occurs when the nature or severity of the student"s disability is such that his/her progress in the general curriculum is at risk unless specialized instruction takes place in a different, more restrictive setting.

The continuum of services available to students with disabilities includes:
  • Collaboration / Consultation Services in the Regular Education Classes
  • Supplemental
  • Services Teacher
  • Inclusion
  • Individual / Small Group Instruction
  • Resource Room
  • Special Class
  • Separate Facility
  • Home Instruction
  • Institutions
  • Hospitals
In addition, students with disabilities may receive related services which are support services needed to allow the student to benefit from his/her educational program. Related services could include:
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Speech & Language
  • Audiological
  • Interpreter
  • Orientation & Mobility
  • School Psychological
  • Transportation
  • Nursing Services
  • Assistants
Preschool children with disabilities, beginning on their third birthday, are entitled to the same type of services as school-age students.
