Welcome to CVCHS
Department of Special Education
Collaborative Education Supports
Special education is a program designed to meet the unique educational needs of children with disabilities who meet eligibility criteria under the law.
The CVCHS's Department of Special Education's mission is to provide support to special education students so that they can realize their academic and human potential through meeting the District's standards. Our goal is to improve special education service delivery and student support in CVCHS while promoting student independence. The department continually assesses strengths and areas that need to be strengthened. Following assessment, plans are implemented to address areas in need of improvement.
The Department of Special Education at CVCHS is committed to identifying and supporting diverse learners and developing their skills to access their education, as well as foster their independence toward their post-secondary transition. CVCHS complies with all laws and requirements for an LEA and services all students as outlined in their IEP. CVCHS follows both procedural and substantive compliance to ensure a Free and Appropriate Education in the Least Restrictive Environment for students to receive educational benefit.
At present our CVCHS Special Education programs consist of mild to moderate, typically know as a resource program, as well as a moderate to severe program, otherwise known as Special Day class program.
Please do not hesitate to reach out for any questions or to schedule a visit.
