Special Schools

ALMA Pre-School

This school serves students from 3-5 who have qualified for an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Services include but are not limited to:

  • Speech and/or Language services
  • Special Day Classes
  • Orientation and Mobility services
  • Occupational Therapy services

 

Roy Johnson Transition Program

This class, located on the campus of Redwood High School, serves students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) who are between the ages of 18-22. Students work on goals and services outlined in their IEP with an emphasis on building social skills, community based skills, job development, and functional academics.


Nonpublic Nonsectarian Schools
Placement in a nonpublic school is provided for those students whose educational needs cannot be met in the public schools.

State Special Schools

Special schools, for the deaf and blind operated by the California State Department of Education, sometimes serve as placement when a student's special needs warrant such a program. The California School of the Deaf (CSD) and the California School of the Blind (CSB) are both located in Fremont, CA. 

Individual Instruction in Home/Hospital
Disabled students who cannot profit from special class placement in the regular school setting may be placed on home instruction. This is usually intended as a short term service until the student can be returned to a school program. This is determined by the IEP team.

Residential Institution
When a student's problems are so severe that the child needs 24-hour care to provide an appropriate education, the student may be placed in a residential setting.
