Special Education

Special education is a broad term that describes the education of students who have intellectual, physical, behavioral, or emotional disabilities. The Independence Community School District’s special education programs consist of specially designed instruction, aligned with the Iowa Core, to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability. The wide range of services include:

  • Early Childhood Special Education
  • Co-taught & Pull-out Classes
  • Consultation
  • Collaboration
  • Special Class Services
  • Transition
  • Alternative Placement Services

Special education teachers work collaboratively with general education teachers to ensure the best education for all students.
