Special Education at Westford Academy
Special Education services at Westford Academy consist of Resource Rooms that serve students with academic support, inclusion support, individualized content classes, and a Life Skills Program. Students are scheduled into Special Education classes according to their needs, as determined through the 766 team meeting process and IDEA-2004 guidelines.
The Special Needs teachers who staff the Resource Rooms work with individual students according to their educational plans. They function as academic coaches for those students who needs help with homework and study skills, as teachers of basic skills for those students who need reinforcement and support in those skill areas previously taught but not yet mastered, and as counselors for those students needing emotional, as well as educational support.
