Welcome to the Oliver Middle School Special Education Department Website

Empower word pictureThe OMS teachers provide a variety of special education supports and services to meet the needs of students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment. This includes direct support to students in general education and special education classes and indirect support to general education teachers.

Consultant Teacher services

Special education teachers may provide consultant teacher services to students with disabilities who are enrolled in regular education classes. Direct or indirect services may be provided depending upon the needs of the child, for a minimum of two hours per week. The student's Individual Education Plan (IEP) will outline the specific needs to be addressed.

Special Class (15:1, 12:1:1, and 12:1:1 [Life Skills])

A special class is for students who may require a more restrictive setting, a small class structure, a consistent environment, or a focus on behavior management designed to meet their needs. The special class teacher utilizes a prioritized or modified curriculum based on student need. Any modifications would be noted on the child's IEP. The special class may be provided to the student for particular subjects or for the majority of the school day. This class serves students with all types of disabilities.
