Program Delivery

Faribault Public Schools Special Education Programs offer a variety of programs to meet student's needs. These programs fall on a continuum based on the student's level of need

Brief descriptions are listed below.

Direct Services:
Students work directly with special educators on a regular basis. They can work in a variety of settings: general education classroom, resource room, high needs room or a combination.

Indirect Services:
This type of service mainly provides consultation services for general education teachers. The student receives his/her education in the general education classroom, and specialists are available to provide ideas and resources to make that student's experience successful.

Team Teachings:
This model of service provides extra support in the general education classroom. Two teachers (one general and one special education) share the teaching responsibilities for their class. The special education teacher provides accommodations and individual support to facilitate the success of all students.

Resource Room Instruction:
This model of service provides pull out support for students. The students leave the general education classroom for assistance with general curriculum, specialized curriculum, and/or behavioral support. Time spent in this setting depends on student need.

Self-Contanined / High Needs:
This model of service provides instruction for students who need to spend more than half of their school day in a specialized program. Needs addressed in these programs vary, including academic, functional, and behavioral programming. These programs operate in conjunction with general education, with future mainstreaming as the goal. These programs are not offered at every site, so student transfers may happen based on student needs.

Out of District Services:
On some occasions, student needs surpass what our district can offer. In this event, our district contracts with programs outside of Faribault Public Schools on a case-by-case basis.
