Special Education


At Virtual Learning we offer special education services to our students in small group and one on one settings.  Our students are able to work closely with their special education teachers to find success within their class work and academic goals. 


 Your child will meet in a one on one or small group setting in order to get the most appropriate instruction for his/her needs. These meets are mandatory and set by the special education teachers based on the goals and academic areas. 


  • DROP IN TIME: High school offers a virtual resource as a way for students to get additional assistance. This meet occurs 1-2 times a week and is on a drop in basis.  It is provided as another resource for students to receive help with their coursework. 
  • FLEXIBILITY: Students are able to work at their own pace designated by their IEP.
  • ACCOUNTABILITY: Students have designated meets with their teachers (regular education and special education) to assist with work and meet Specially Designed Instruction minutes/progress within their goals. Attendance is taken during these meets and they are mandatory.


  • Attend and Participate in ALL meetings                                                                                                                 
  • Creating a schedule that works for YOU
  • Advocate for yourself when you need help
