Early Warning Systems
The MACCS DWC (District Wellness Committee) meets once each semester to ensure that the student and staff environment is healthy and safe.
MACCS operates its special education program through full inclusion of students in the regular classroom setting. The small class sizes and teacher expertise create an environment where the students have the opportunity to learn alongside their peers. Additional support is provided to each student based on their individual learning needs that are determined by their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) team. Additional services to support the students’ education can range from speech to language services, physical therapy, and many more to ensure the implementation of the IEP within the Least Restrictive Environment so that the student is receiving a free and appropriate public education.
If you are a parent or guardian of a student who has received special education services during their academic experience, we encourage you to be of assistance by bringing us as much information as possible to help us facilitate the services needed to provide an appropriate educational experience for your child.
