ED Cluster Department 

The Cluster Program at Richard Montgomery High school is a special education program that provides educational support to students experiencing significant emotional, behavioral and social difficulties in school. Through the implementation of an Individual Education Plan (IEP), educational supports are given so that students may experience success in the academic and social environments at Richard Montgomery. The Cluster program staff identify developmentally appropriate learning strategies and interventions that are implemented throughout a student’s day at school. The program consists of 5 teachers and 7 educational assistants. In addition, there is a program coordinator and mental health support team. This consists of a psychologist, social worker and behavior support teacher. Students are provided with a full continuum of services, ranging from self-contained academic classes to full inclusion in all general education classes and school-wide activities.
