The Special Education Department provides individualized instructional programs to those students who have been identified by the Planning and Placement Team as needing such services. Individual student needs are defined as a result of educational and psychological diagnosis; an individualized special education program is developed appropriate to these identified needs. Resource Room based courses are appropriate when participation in the regular curriculum would be not appropriate. A student meets with the Resource Room teacher individually or in small groups. Individualized programs are designed from the course offerings.
