Special Education

Overview

Student Support Services supports the mission of Adams 12 Five Star Schools to accelerate student academic performance and nurture student social development. The Five Star District offers a full continuum of services for students with disabilities.  All schools are equipped to meet the mild/moderate needs of students with disabilities, while a variety of center-based programs and more intensive services are offered at multiple schools throughout the district.  

Our Guiding Principles

  • All students are general education students first

  • All resources in a school are integrated to increase student learning

  • Collaborative problem solving removes barriers to student learning

  • Student progress is monitored to determine response to intervention

  • Interventions are supplemental to Universal First Best Instruction

  • Student learning is the outcome
