Special education is specially designed instruction that addresses the unique needs of a student eligible to receive special education services. If your child has been found eligible for Special Education, he or she most likely has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The PAC Special Education Department and Child Study Team work with all stakeholders (parents, teachers, specialists, advocates, community resources) to ensure that those students that have a disability or health impairment have the services, modifications, and accommodations that they need in order to be successful at school.

The Child Study Team (CST) is a group of professionals at PAC who provide consultative, evaluative, and prescriptive services to teachers and parents in regard to students who are experiencing school related difficulties.
