Welcome Parents and Guardians to Vernon Middle School SPED department.
Our special education department is an amazing department with wonderful teachers and excellent support staff. We have a full range of class settings each designed with academic excellence in mind. Our programs range from the RSP model where students spend 100% of their time in a general education classroom, to the SDC MS program where students spend 100% of their time in special education classrooms. We have a full time Speech and Language Pathologist, a part time Occupational Therapist and part time Adaptive Physical Education teacher.
Each child has a “case carrier” who is the one who coordinates services, classes, and paperwork. They would be your first point of contact if you have any questions or concerns.
If you do not know who your case carrier is, please contact Melanie Gomez and I can help point you in the right direction.
We will be seeing you in your IEP meetings. We hold them at least once per year and twice for 8th graders so they can transition to high school.
Our goal is for each student to learn and grow to their fullest potential!
With warm regards
