STUDENT INTERVENTION & Disability SERVICES
A variety of options available for students needing additional supports at school. If you feel that your child may need additional support please speak with your child's teacher, school counselor or principal to discuss interventions that can be put in place immediately. If a student appears to have a disability information from supports needed at school will help to determine if an additional type of disability plan such as an Individual Education Plan or 504 plan are needed. Our Intervention & Special Education Coordinator is Jennifer Clark.
