Enhanced Access To Core Curriculum For Exceptional Students Through Participation In General Education Classes
The Board of Trustees endorses every effort to provide maximum access to the core curriculum for students with exceptional needs in the general education classroom, through support and enhanced learning experiences. The Board recognizes that all individuals with exceptional needs have a right to a free appropriate public education.
The District, in cooperation with the San Benito County Special Education Local Planning Area, in order to educate most effectively individuals with exceptional needs, makes available a continuum of educational program options, including placements outside the student's regular attendance area and placements at the student's home school in the general education classroom, and in other small group or individual settings, where appropriate.
A student's learning needs shall guide the Individualized Educational Program (IEP) Team in making appropriate placement, consultation and supplemental direct service decisions.
Every effort shall be made to provide maximum access to the age/grade appropriate general education, core curriculum classes for students with exceptional needs.
The District, through appropriately trained specialist staff or other instructors, shall provide direct supplemental instructional time and services, as are necessary and feasible, to support and enhance the learning experiences and identified specific learning needs of students whose IEP profiles so require, to the extent necessary to meet the federal and state mandates for such students, as they may be adopted, from time to time.
