The Weston High School Special Education Department is designed to teach learning strategies to students who require specialized instruction. The department offers classes that support mainstream academics, as well as specialized classes in the areas of math, reading, language arts, and community.
Individualized instruction for students with specific academic and/or social/emotional needs is provided with the context of special academic courses or support services. Depending on the nature and severity of the student's problem, Weston High School's Planning and Placement Team (administrator, teachers, guidance, school psychologist, parents, and student) recommends the special education courses required for the student to perform successfully at Weston High School. Decisions are based on the results of psycho-educational testing, class performance, observations of behavior, and consultation with mainstream teachers. IEP's address specific academic, behavioral, and transition goals.
