Special Education - Academics

In general, most students with disabilities are capable of learning the content, scope, and sequence of the general education curriculum when the necessary modifications and adaptations in content and instructional strategies are made. The majority of students with disabilities are instructed along with their regular education peers using the Common Core State Standards. At times, the IEP team may determine that a student requires a replacement reading curriculum.

Special Education - Behavior

All Milwaukee Public Schools participate in a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports system. This is a schoolwide, systematic, tiered-intervention approach to behaviors that effectively helps to reduce classroom disruptions and student suspensions. Students whose behavior continues to interfere with their learning or that of others after intensive behavioral interventions may qualify for special education services to address their individual needs. Special education teachers work in conjunction with other school personnel to develop strategies and goals to address each student’s strengths and weaknesses in order to help the student make changes in his or her behavior.
