Students who meet eligibility requirements under the Individual with Disabilities in Education Act are provided an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). In compliance with state and federal guidelines, ECRCHS provides a continuum of services and program options for students in special education.
El Camino Real Charter High School’s Special Education Department operates using the Collaboration/Inclusion Model and provides students, who receive special education services, a Free And Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).
ECRCHS students are provided with a positive and supportive educational environment and have access to curriculum and instructional practices through a continuum of services which include, but are not limited, to the following programs:
Students enrolled in the RSP program are provided with support in General Education classrooms through the help of RSP Teachers, Co-Teachers, Paraprofessionals, and other related services providers. The RSP Program also offers students additional assistance in the Resource Room for help with homework, tutoring, small-group instruction, and other academic support.
Students are provided with direct specialized instruction in a separate classroom environment for most of the school day. As appropriate, students who are enrolled in special day classes interact with their general education peers through academic, non-academic, and extracurricular activities.
