Special Ed

The Special Education Department provides the support that students with special needs require.  They utilize Individualized Educational Plans to guide their instruction.  The teachers in the Special Education Department work collaboratively with the General Education Teachers.  The Special Education Department consist of one Resource Room and a Cross Categorical Room at both the Elementary and Junior High levels.  Speech Pathology is also part of the Special Education department.  The speech pathologist evaluates and treats speech and language disorders.

The Early Childhood Special Education Program is an IEP based program.  Students must qualify in order to attend.  The A.M. class is 3 and 4 year olds and the P.M. class is 4 and 5 year olds.  The goal of ECSE is to enable students to grow in areas of delay
to allow them to reach age level (and grade level) expectations. Skill areas of focus within the program include: academics (reading, math, writing), functional (working independently to complete daily activities as well as navigating the school environment), social emotional (learning to interact with other children of similar ages appropriately),  language, gross motor,  fine motor, and kinesthetic (body awareness and coordinating body movements).    
The Special Education Teachers are Robbie Kline, Corletta Bowen, Eric Heiden and Mandy Probst.  Speech Pathologist is Karie Schultz. The district Psychologist is Kathy Clausius and district Social Worker is Amy Ruckman.
