Continuum of Service
As outlined in Article 7, students are provided with the availability of a Continuum of Service. A case conference committee gathers to discuss the needs and services a student requires to have access to his or her least restrictive environment. The outcomes of those discussions and decisions are written in a child’s IEP to ensure compliance.
The Continuum of Services are offered to all students from Preschool to age 22. Preschool special education services are provided for students starting at age 3 to ensure early intervention supports and services are provided. In order to receive special education services in pre-School services are discussed and agreed upon in a case conference to provide services to address any social/emotional, academic, and/or developmental disorders. For students in Kindergarten to age 22 services are provided through a continuum.
