Special Needs and Programs

Morse serves Severely Handicapped/Integrated Life Skills (SH/ILS) students. The ILS classrooms are collectively staffed with certificated teachers and paraprofessional support staff (Special Education Technicians and Behavior Technicians).

 

For students with mild to moderate disabilities, Morse offers an integrated classroom environment. There are resource specialist teachers and paraprofessional support staff (special education assistants) who work with students and support their IEPs and/or 504 Plan accommodations in general education classrooms.

 

All special education and general education students also receive support services from the following certificated and credentialed personnel as needed: school nurse, school psychologist, speech and language pathologist, and deaf and hard of hearing support provider.

 

GATE identified students are clustered together and supported by several advanced programs: AVID, Seminar, Cluster, Honors, and Advanced Placement courses.

 

ELL students receive additional support and courses through rigorous programs including a special section of AVID and CAHSEE support to aid them in their transition into general education programs. In addition, numerous programs were introduced this year to begin early intervention addressing the needs of struggling students.
