The Commodore Perry School District operates the following types of classes for special needs students:
The following types of placements can be made available for student if the MPT team decides that this type of class is needed:
|Sensory Support Skills Class – for children who require help in dealing with visual or hearing problems.|
|Physical Support Class – for children who need programs that consider their physical disabilities.|
|Autism Support Class – for non-verbal children on the autism spectrum|
|Multi-handicapped Support Class – for children with more than one disability, the combination of which results in needs requiring many services and much support.|
(Individual Education Program)
The IEP team determines whether a child is exceptional and in need of special education. The team designs the student’s program and determines where needs will be addressed.
The team then develops the IEP that maximizes the student’s education with regular education students.

Our school has a three-part screening process in place that identifies students who may need special education.
Level 1 Screening, the school reviews student records including attendance and report cards.
Level 2 Screening, the school looks at the student’s speech and language, vision, hearing and motor skills.
Level 3 Screening, involves the Instructional Support Team (IST) process. It looks at progress in your child’s classroom and tries some different teaching techniques and materials to see if your child’s work or behavior improves.
