Special Education services are provided to approximately 1,700 children ages birth through 21 within the community of Bloomington. Special Education is specially designed instruction and related services that enable a student with an identified disability to access and benefit from their educational program. We provide unique programming options for students who qualify for one or more of the thirteen areas of special education eligibility established by the State of Minnesota.
At all grade levels of New Code Academy, we have designated Multi-Categorical Special Education Teachers who provide small group services as well as one to one support. Services are determined through a team meeting prior to or upon enrollment.
All students will be enrolled in and expected to attend grade level classes, have their cameras on during instruction, and respond to all staff in class/breakout rooms verbally or through chat options. A student's IEP may address individual needs regarding engagement in the accommodations identified by the team.
The Special Education Teachers collaborate with the General Education Teachers to ensure provision of accommodation and determine where any modifications may need to take place. They also provide case management for all students who receive special education services. An Early Childhood Special Education representative is available for consult for early learners.
Related Services (Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Developmental/Adapted Physical Education, Speech, Social Work, Visual Impairment, Deaf/Hard of Hearing and Nursing) provision will also be reviewed prior to or upon enrollment to determine updated service minutes in accordance with the online schedule.
