What We Do
Specially designed instruction and related
services are sometimes provided to a student with a disability in a setting
other than the general education classroom. A setting outside of the general

needs of the student with a disability due to the need for extensive
modification of the presentation of materials, methods of response of the
student, setting, accommodations and/or the timing and scheduling of the
Decisions to place a student in a resource
setting are based on the individual needs of the student, as determined by the
student's IEP. A student receiving this level of support will generally receive
some instruction in special education resource and some instruction in the general
education classroom with modifications and/or accommodations.
