Exceptional Education

Enabling Student Learning

CCS provides comprehensive Exceptional Education services to facilitate student growth through evaluation, intervention, accommodations, and modifications. Exceptional Education professionals work with faculty and staff so that teachers are able to meet a variety of student needs across ability levels. Alternate reading and math curricula are used as needed for students who require a different means of instruction.

An individual service plan (ISP), which is based on standardized testing that demonstrates an eligible diagnosis, is developed to help students with exceptionalities succeed academically at CCS. Exceptional Education staff members work to help students learn as they are best able to learn. At CCS, we have students with a variety of needs who are fully included in each classroom. Our intent is to serve whole families who would have all of their children attend CCS, regardless of their academic capabilities. CCS offers alternate diploma tracks according to student needs.
Exceptional Education staff work with the Hamilton County Department of Education (HCDE) to ensure that students at CCS are afforded an appropriate assessment as required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) under the Child Find mandates. Many students at CCS receive therapy services including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and language therapy through the provisions of IDEA for parentally-placed private school students.
