Students with Disabilities

What is an IEP?

IEP stands for Individualized Education Plan. If you have been diagnosed with a disability you are eligible for accommodations to make sure that your education is personalized to you. 

Accommodations are generally focused on either testing or classroom learning. Some accommodations for testing include more time to work, questions read out loud, or timed breaks throughout the test. Some accommodations for in class learning include breaks from the classroom and small group learning with another teacher.

The accommodations you receive are based on your individual needs.
