Special Education Hmong College Prep Academy 2019 - 2020 School Year
Special Education Our K-12, Engage in a process in which teachers start with rigorous standards and instruction, but anticipating how the material will need to be scaffolded to meet the needs of each student. Specialized instruction is planned, organized and meaningful in that it is an intentional and systematic process that specifically addresses the student's needs as expressed in the IEP goals and objectives. What makes instruction truly individualized and specially designed for a student with a disability and different from what a general education student receives is how the instruction is linked to the student's IEP goals and objectives.
