Intervention Supports

Intervention supports are provided to students needing supports with academic needs, behavioral needs or both. These supports vary in range from support provided within their general education classroom to tutorial support in a small group environment. Student Support Team meetings determine what type and specific amounts of services are needed for each individual student. Information about your child's building Student Support Team can be obtained by contacting the building Principal and/or counselor.

Section 504

Students who have or have had a disability, which interferes with learning but does not require specialized instruction beyond the general education, may qualify for a Section 504 plan that documents and insures the provision of needed accommodations within the general education classroom setting. For further information about Section 504 eligibility you may contact your building coordinator/counselor or the Director of Special Education & Services.
