Special Education Department Staff

Berkeley High School serves approximately 320 students with Individual Educational Plans (IEP’s). Special Education services at the high school meet the diverse requirements of students with a wide range of learning needs, from mild to moderate learning disabilities to severe cognitive and physical differences. In accordance with the mandate to provide the least restrictive environment for all students, special education staff members provide students with the most inclusive program possible. Special education teachers collaborate with and support general education teachers. All learning communities are able to meet the needs of all students with IEP’s, and educational specialists work with the staff of each learning community to make the curriculum accessible. Special educators teach literacy, math and transition with the twin goals of increasing student success in general education and of promoting positive post-secondary outcomes. Students’ school programs are designed through the IEP process and may include single or multiple periods of inclusive education support. The IEP process also focuses on building skills needed for post secondary transition, sometimes including job placements, individualized programs that enable students to make up needed credits, and classes explicitly preparing students for life after high school.
