Special Education Resource Program
Special Education Resource Teachers (SERTs) provide direct and indirect services to students in every school in the areas of academic, emotional/behavioral, social skills, functional and adaptive skills and/or vocational skills for up to half of a student’s day. Schools develop their own models to meet the individual needs of students. Models range from pull out (small group instruction) to collaborative models, teaming with general educational staff, special education staff and other support services. Parents and staff develop an Individual Education Plan for each student, based on his or her learning needs.
