We are committed to providing a caring community of dedicated staff that meets the diverse academic, emotional, and social needs of all of our students in a respectful and positive environment. By providing positive learning experiences that facilitate success for students in special education through high-quality instruction, as well as collaboration with parents, students, schools, service agencies, and the community, students will focus on their positive attributes and recognize their individual strengths and achievements to promote their future success.
In compliance with Federal law, Dr. Robert Ketterer Charter School will provide to each protected handicapped student, without discrimination of cost to the student or family, those related aids, services or accommodations which are needed to provide equal opportunity to participate in and obtain the benefits of the school program and extra-curricular activities to the maximum extent appropriate to the student’s abilities. In order to qualify as a protected handicapped student, the child must be of school age with a physical or mental disability, which substantially limits or prohibits participation in or access to an aspect of the school program.
These services and protections for protected handicapped students are distinct from those applicable to all eligible or exceptional students enrolled (or seeking enrollment) in special education programs.
For further information on the evaluation procedures and provisions to protected handicapped students, please contact the Special Education Supervisor at 724-804-7030.
