“Special education” is instruction, specific to the student, at no cost to parents, to meet the unique needs of a student with a disability. Special education is an instructional service, not a place. Specialized instruction and supports are provided through an Individualized Education Program (IEP) plan, which addresses the student’s unique needs related to his or her disability.
It is important to note that students with disabilities are general education students first. Students receive special education services in collaboration with Cologne Academy general education teachers and curriculum. Students with IEPs are provided with accommodations in the classroom and modifications to the curriculum as indicated by the student’s individual needs.
