Special Education
The Special Education Department at Gloucester High School is dedicated to ensuring multiple levels of service for students with disabilities. All students with disabilities are provided with a free appropriate public education. A continuum of instructional alternatives is provided within the least restrictive environment to ensure that each child has the opportunity to be successful. GHS offers special education classes (such as English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies) and general education classroom instruction with special education assistance and/or modifications. High school special education students are afforded the opportunity to receive a Standard Diploma, Advanced Studies Diploma, Modified Standard Diploma (*see NOTE below), Special Diploma, or Certificate of Completion. All secondary special education programs are designed to prepare the students to function at their highest academic and vocational potential. All programs share the common goal of preparing the students to lead a productive and independent adult life. * NOTE: The Modified Standard Diploma will not be an option for students with disabilities who enter the ninth grade for the first time after 2012-2013. Beginning with students entering ninth grade for the first time in 2013-2014, credit accommodations will be provided to allow students with disabilities who previously would have pursued a Modified Standard Diploma to earn a Standard Diploma. Guidelines for credit accommodations will be issued by the Board of Education. In order to be enrolled in any Special Education courses, students must be found eligible for special education services and must have a current Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in place. Together with their case manager, parent, and school counselor, the following elective courses may be selected for students with disabilities.
