Students with Disabilities at CPCS comprise approximately 20% of our student population and learn alongside general education students in an inclusive learning environment. Our special education staff seeks the least restrictive program and services for each child while maintaining high expectations for learning.
CPCS special education students receive services from occupational, physical, and speech and language therapists from the Department of Education free of charge. Providers collaborate with school staff to meet with students during school hours and integrate these strategies into their classroom.
With the support of our Licensed Clinical Social Worker and staff members who are trained in trauma-informed practice, students can find a nurturing environment to help develop healthy, confident, well-adjusted children across all school environments giving them skills they can carry outside of the four walls of the classroom and school.
CPCS offers a free-standing ESL program with a combination of push-in and pull-out instruction to service the approximately 15% of ELLs that make up our student population. With the support of over 50% bilingual staff members and our ESL teachers, CPCS is equipped to provide essential language support while preserving the diverse cultural backgrounds of our students.
In addition to the programs and services offered at CPCS, if a child has an IEP, he or she may qualify for specialized (door-to-door) transportation, testing accommodations or modifications, assistive technology, and/or paraprofessional supports. If you have any questions about these or other supports at CPCS, please contact the Director of Instructional support.
