Special Education Enrollment
The ALC Special Education Program provides primarily Level 1 and Level 2 services for students with documented disabilities. A full continuum of special education services is available within the regular high school settings through Level 3. District 196 provides Level 4 Special Education Services at Dakota Ridge School.
If a prospective student currently receives special education services, please have the student’s case manager contact the ALC special education team to schedule an Individual Education Plan (IEP) meeting with special education team members present from both schools. The IEP meeting must occur prior to the new student meeting date. For students with an IEP, two steps must occur no less than two days before the term's New Student Informational Meeting date:
- Step 1 - The ALC Special Education Team must receive and review copies of your most recent IEP and evaluation report, and speak with your current case manager about your intent to transfer. PLEASE ASK YOUR CURRENT CASE MANAGER TO CONTACT THE ALC SPECIAL EDUCATION TEAM. FAX THE REQUIRED PAPERWORK AS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
- Step 2 - Unless you are transferring from another ALC (or outside the south metro area), your current case manager must arrange an IEP meeting, inviting an ALC Special Education Representative to determine as a team whether or not the ALC can accommodate your special education services/needs, as specified in your IEP.
