Special Education

  • A student at Herricks High School who has been determined by the Committee on Special Education (CSE) to have a disability is provided with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) that takes both the kind and degree of disability into account.  The CSE reevaluates the student's needs each year at the Annual Review.  The IEP describes the learning conditions and services that a student shall need.  There is a spectrum of services available at the high school.  Individual students receive one or a combination of these services.
