Serves K-12 students with disabilities in the areas of pre-academics, math, reading, written expression, behavior improvement, study skills, social skills, vocational training and independent living skills. Resource room teachers employ several delivery models that include:
- Inclusion support in the general education classroom.
- Co-teaching models.
- Strategic academic groups (reading, math, or written language) that include students needing instruction in similar skills.
- Direct instruction in the resource room using general education curriculum and/or special education research-based curriculum materials.
Each school has one or more special education teacher and paraprofessional. Students in this program usually spend all or most of their day in general education classrooms. The goal for time spent in general education is 80 percent of the school day.
