    Academic Support: We support students with Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and work with students on reading, writing, math, social/behavior skills and study skills. Most special education support happens in students’ regular classes, although we do provide small group or 1:1 pullout based on student needs. Our goal is to increase students’ access to the general education curriculum. The teachers are located in Office B.
