Upper Elementary and Middle School 15:1 Classrooms

Our 15:1 Special class is a special education class that has a maximum of 15 students, with one certified special education teacher and one teaching assistant (optional). This option is not as restrictive as a 12:1:1 class, but is more restrictive than resource support. The student may receive all primary instruction in the special class, or be integrated into general education classes for specific subjects per the IEP. This option is generally used for grades 5 and up.

The student in need of a special class needs a small class structure and a consistent environment designed to meet their needs. The special class teachers utilize a prioritized curriculum to teach the general education curriculum. Any modifications would be noted on the child's IEP.

The 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. Least restrictive environment is always considered before a placement is determined.
