Special Education programming is offered through the summer for students who qualify per federal and state guidelines. At your student’s annual IEP meeting, summer opportunities will be discussed. Based on his/her needs and supporting data, the team will decide if any of these are appropriate for your child. If you have questions, please contact your school’s Special Education Coordinator.
