Special Education

YPI Charter School’s Special Education Program provides a highly engaging small group and/or individualized education in an inclusive setting depending on individual student needs. The program provides regular and ongoing assessment of each student’s progress towards his or her specific IEP goals and objectives.

We understand that parent relationship is an essential part of student success. Periodic trainings are made available to help parents better understand the needs of their child, implement the IEP at home, and to provide support in behavior management. Parents are provided formal Parent/teacher conferences each semester and ongoing communication from the program regarding their child’s progress.

The program is in an inclusive setting providing interaction with nondisabled peers. Planned and informal interactions among peers allow for maximum success in the application of social skills.

The School uses a School-Wide Positive Behavior Support system that defines expectations across multiple settings, uses positive, proactive approach to manage behavior, and utilizes accommodations to minimize problem behavior.
