Special Education Services

The Global Learning Charter Public School special education program assists meeting the unique needs of identified students at GLCPS. Educational services, evaluation, curriculum modifications and accommodations are offered to children through individualized learning programs. Families and guardians plan with teachers, related services professionals and specialists to coordinate educational plans for particular students. We are dedicated to educating all students and believe that students with disabilities should be educated in full inclusion to the greatest extent possible within the least restrictive environment. Special education services are a continuum of services, accommodations, and/or modifications designed to meet the needs of students through the Team process.
