Special Education

NEW Academy of Science and Arts is committed to providing instruction, resources, and services to all students with special needs, helping them succeed and achieve their goals outlined in the individualized educational plan (IEP).

NEW Academy of Science and Arts is committed to the goal of providing an appropriate education for students with needs in the least restrictive environment. State and Federal Special Education laws and regulations, namely The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), govern the referral, evaluation and placement procedures.

Teachers provide instruction and employ multiple strategies and accommodations to make the subject matter more comprehensible to special education (SPED) students. Our trained educators and service providers are qualified to teach SPED students, meeting their individual needs.

We provide an inclusive environment that welcomes all learners, including students with unique needs.
