Our Special Education Day Classes (SDC) are classes that support our students with more intensive needs that cannot be met within the general education environment. The curriculum and grading is modified to maximize the child's participation within the school environment. Our classes vary from Mild/Moderate to Moderate/Severe needs.
Our Young Adult Transition Program services our students until the age of 22. This program focusing on students life skills, vocacional skills, and independent living skills. It aims to prepare students to be out in the community and live as independently as possible.
Our Resource Program(RSP) provides specialized academic instruction for the needs of students within their academic areas. Depending on the students needs, these services can be served within the general education environment or a student can receive pull-out services outside their general education environment.
Our Inclusion Program offers students with IEPs to be able to be part of the general environment with the support of special education. The classroom will have both general education students and students with IEPs. There is a general education teacher teaching the classroom along with the support of a special education teacher and a behavior technician.
A student may be eligible for home/hospital instruction if they are confined to the home or the hospital due to a "temporary disability" as defined in Ed. Code 48206.3. This is a temporary and highly restrictive placement. Placement decisions are made by the Director of Special Services after a request is submitted by the parent, a Medical Verification is completed by the physician and a recommendation is made by the school nurse and Director of Special Services.
As a general rule, placement in home/hospital should be considered if the student is expected to miss 3-8 weeks of school. Shorter absences should be handled by parent/doctor excuses and make-up work.
Students placed in home/hospital are served by a teacher who facilitates communication and assignments with their regular classroom teacher(s).
In order to request home/hospital instruction the parent should contact the principal, counselor and school nurse. The request and the medical verification must be completed by the student's physician before being submitted to the Director of Special Services for final approval.
