Specialized Academic Instruction

Specialized academic instructional services are provided to students in order to implement their Individualized Education Plans (IEP). Each school site in the Orland Unified School District provides special education services designed to facilitate the acquisition of state standard skills in the least restrictive setting. Teachers with the appropriate training and credentials provide direct instruction to special education students and assist parents and regular staff members with assessment, curriculum and classroom management. Special education staff also monitor pupil services in regular school programs. Students with more intensive needs receive additional time in a special education setting or additional services in general education settings.

Mild/Moderate services are designed to meet the needs of students who require direct special education services from special education teachers, and/or accommodations in a general education setting. Students in the mild/moderate program typically participate in general education settings for much of their school day.

Moderate/Severe services are provided for students who require direct instruction from a special education teacher for most of the school day.

Severe Services are for those students who usually require special education services for the entire school day.
