Special Education GED

Student Profile
This program is designed for students who are in grades 11-12 and are classified either LD or ED.  Students enrolled in this program have an IQ of at least 80 and TABE results in the 6.0 - 8.0 grade range.  Students placed in this is a 15:1:1 classroom should be able to remain focused on task, work well in small and large groups, as well as individually, without interfering with the ability of the classroom staff to teach or work with other students.  It is not a placement for students whose behavioral issues are so severe to warrant routine administrative oversight, intense behavior management planning, or primary instruction in a 1:1 format.  Placement in this class assumes functional reading between 6th and 8th grade.
