The students served must have been identified as having a disability through their local public school district with an Evaluation Team Report (ETR) and have a current Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or Services Plan (ISP) in order to receive support services.
At Roger Bacon, individuals with disabilities are fully included and participate in the general education curriculum. Students must be successful in the general education classroom with varying levels of support, based on their disability.
Roger Bacon is a comprehensive school with three academic levels. Students are assigned to the academic level that offers a pace of instruction that is appropriate for their skill and ability level. An individual may participate in different levels for different subject areas with allowable accommodations. No modifications or changes are made to the curriculum.
