HBCSD special education programs provide the student with education in the "least restrictive environment." This means that the student will, when appropriate, be educated within the general education setting with the necessary supplementary aids and services.
Programs available for special needs students include:
- Regular Education Programs: Students remain in the general education setting and receive related and direct services from special education staff.
- Resource Room Programs: Students receive basic skills instruction from special education staff in resource room setting in addition to their general education program.
- Special Day Class: Students receive intensive instruction in specialized classroom programs from a special education teacher.
- Regional Programs: Students receive services from regional program consultants.
These special services programs are available for students from ages TK-8th. There are also programs within the community that serve students from birth to age five. The goal of all these programs is to assist students in developing their abilities and skills.
