Elementary Special Classes 12:1:1

A 12:1:1 special class is a special education class that has a maximum of 12 students, with one certified special education teacher and one teaching assistant. A student who requires a 12:1:1 class would need a more restrictive setting than a resource room student. The student in need of a special class would need a small class structure and a consistent environment designed to meet their needs. The special class teacher utilizes a the same curriculum as the general education staff however it is prioritized so teachers can focus on the most important information. 

Any curriculum modifications would be noted on the child's IEP. The 12:1:1 program option services all types of disabilities. In addition to the special class, the students often receive related services as per their IEP.

Special class students may be integrated into a regular education setting for up to 50% of the day, or may receive all primary instruction in the special class setting. Integrations are specific for each student and determined at the CSE meeting. We encourage integrations for specials and any subject areas that are appropriate to the student's needs. Supports within the general ed classroom is always considered before a placement is made to a special class. 

Least restrictive environment guides all placement decisions.
