Special Education Department
The Special Education Department at Ashland High School provides individualized instruction for students with disabilities in grades 9-12 in basic academic areas. Students are enrolled in Resource and Academic Support courses upon recommendation of the Special Education TEAM. Parents or students (if over 18 years of age) indicate approval by acceptance of an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) developed on an annual basis, with a complete re evaluation every three years. Classes are limited to 9-12 students based upon staffing and student needs. The curriculum for each student is individualized and reflected by the goals and objectives in the IEP. Additional supportive services, in the form of assessment and consultation, are provided by related service providers, to help students benefit from their instructional program in special education.
