The Special Education team at Mapleton Public Schools is dedicated to supporting the educational needs of students with educational disabilities or special needs. The team works to ensure that all students have access to a quality education and receive the necessary accommodations and services to help them succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.
The specific services provided by the Special Education team may vary depending on the individual needs of the students. These services can include:
- Individualized Education Program (IEP) Development: The department collaborates with parents, teachers, and other professionals to develop and implement IEPs for students with disabilities. An IEP outlines the specific goals, accommodations, modifications, and services that will support the student's learning.
- Special Education Instruction: The department provides specialized instruction tailored to the unique needs of students with disabilities. This can involve small-group or one-on-one instruction to address academic, behavioral, or social-emotional goals.
- Related Services: Mapleton Public Schools' Special Education team may coordinate and provide related services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, or assistive technology to support students' educational progress.
- Collaboration and Consultation: The team works closely with general education teachers, administrators, and support staff to provide guidance and support in meeting the diverse needs of students with disabilities. This can involve collaborative planning, co-teaching, or consultation on instructional strategies and interventions.
- Transition Services: For students nearing the end of their K-12 education, the Special Education team helps with the transition planning process, which may include career exploration, college or vocational training guidance, and support in developing independent living skills.
The goal of the Special Education team is to promote inclusive education and ensure that all students have equitable access to education. They strive to create an environment where students with disabilities can thrive and reach their full potential within the Mapleton Public Schools community.
