The Academic Support Team provides direct instruction and resource support to students identified as having special needs, according to state and federal guidelines. The team consists of general education teachers, special education teachers, related services personnel (speech language pathologist, occupational therapist, etc…) as well as para educators. Kingsview Middle School has an inclusion program with both direct and indirect special education services provided in the classroom. The inclusion classes with direct support consist of a general education classroom teacher working with a special educator; both delivering the curriculum to the entire class. Students are placed in either direct or indirect support classes based on their Individual Education Plan (IEP). The IEP team determines the class schedule in which the student will be most successful. Students are assigned a case manager who oversees their program and meets with these students on a regular basis to support their needs.
