English as Second Language (ESL)
Supports are available for students in grades K-12 who have a language other than English as their primary or home language and who are not yet English language proficient. The program provides assessment, interventions, and monitoring services. It is designed in accordance with mandated state policies and procedures.
Home Instruction Support
Home instruction is a special education service provided for students who cannot attend school due to significant physical or mental health reasons. Services are determined on an individual basis. Home instruction is generally provided in a neutral setting (e.g., public library) or sometimes in the child's home.
Home instruction is designed to assist students so that they do not fall behind in classes. It is a temporary service and is not designed to replace classroom instruction.
School Health Services
School nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development, promote health and safety, intervene with actual and potential health problems, provide case management services, and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy, and learning.
School Psychological Services
School psychological services support families, school, and the community in meeting the academic and mental health needs of students.
The school psychologists:
Consult with parents, teachers, and other professionals to promote student well being and achievement.
Develop special prevention and intervention programs for students.
Advocate sound educational practices for all students.
Provide formal assessments of a child's abilities, learning styles, emotional development, and social skills.
