Special Education

Special Education

Special education is specially designed instruction based on the needs of an individual student.  As required by law, Faribault Public Schools provides a free, appropriate public education to about 700 students with disabilities from birth through age 21 who attend both public and private schools.  A team develops, implements, and reviews each student's individual program.

The following range of services are provided depending on a student's individual needs:

- Students with disabilities functioning in the regular education program with the assistance of special education support services such as: consultation with the classroom teacher, monitoring progress, modification of the curriculum, or direct teaching within the regular classroom.

- Students with disabilities functioning in the regular education program but needing services outside the regular classroom.

- Students with disabilities whose primary placement is in a special education program with some mainstreaming in regular education.

- Students who, due to the intensity of their needs, are placed in specialized programs in locations other than their home school.
