Special Education Welcome
Welcome to GOHS Instructional Support Department
Our mission is to give each student an opportunity to access the least restrictive environment and enjoy the classes and activities that Great Oak High School has to offer. The Great Oak Special Education Department is committed to providing the necessary support to help your students succeed. All of our students have the opportunity to meet with their case carriers every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for 30 minutes during intervention time. This time is built into the Great Oak school day for all students and gives Case Carriers an opportunity to see the students on their caseload often and work with them on their goals, schoolwork, and transition activities. Additionally, we offer college and career readiness resources beginning in freshman year and continuing through senior year. Included in this are outside agency support and an opportunity to participate in paid work experience.
Our Site houses four programs, which include Critical Life Skills (CLS), Bridge, Special Day Class (SDC), and Resource Support Program (RSP). Our Special Day Class Courses, also known as "Concept" Classes, consist of smaller class sizes, a slower-paced curriculum, and more structured support. These classes are NOT university approved A-G courses, meaning a student would not be able to apply to university upon graduation. However, students would be able to attend a community college after high school and then apply to a 4-year university. We do not currently offer concept elective classes as our school site teachers support all our students in the electives that are offered.
Students who are enrolled in general education courses are all on a pathway of university A-G approved courses. Please visit the Course Selection Page on the Counseling site for more information on graduation and university requirements.
