The Center for Student Services provides classes designed to support the unique needs of students in the public school setting who experience moderate to intensive disabilities. Serving students ages 5-21, the program is a link in the continuum of program options for students with disabilities. The program promotes and facilitates inclusion opportunities for students with appropriate supports. Students are supported by a team of highly-qualified and licensed/certified ESC professionals, which may include a paraprofessional.

Related services are provided on an individual basis. The staff works collaboratively with district personnel to support students and parents. The staff develops and implements Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals designed to meet the needs of each student. With a maximum class size of eight, students also benefit from small group instruction in a highly-specialized learning environment.
