Special Education Support Room

  • The Special Education Support Room is a learning space  where a special education teacher instructs and assists students identified with a disability. This classroom is staffed by a special education teacher and sometimes paraprofessionals. The number of students in a Special Education Support Room at a specific time varies, but typically lower student teacher ratio. These students receive special instruction in an individualized or group setting for a portion of the day. Individual needs are supported in Special Education Support Room as defined by the student's Individualized Education Program (IEP). The student getting this type of support will receive some time in the Special Education Support Room, which is referred to as a "removal from the regular education environment" portion of the day and inclusion in the regular classroom with modifications and/or accommodations which may include specialized instruction with their non-impaired peers.
