Special Education Program

The special education program at Christ Classical Academy serves students with mild, moderate, and significant disabilities.  Students with disabilities receive the majority of their services and supports within the context of general education classrooms.  Children with autism spectrum disorders are taught using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA is a research-based method proven successful in treating children with language delays, communication disorders, and other developmental disabilities.

Each student in our program has a varying number of meaningful goals in the domains of communication, social interaction, academics, behavior, and independent functioning. The goals are chosen with input from the special education teacher, general education teacher, and parents. Each goal is run in a variety of settings, including individual, group, and inclusive settings. Data is collected on goals, and we work as a team to monitor progress.

Three levels of services are offered in the Back Creek Exceptional Student Education program.  Placement is decided upon by the IEP team (special education teacher, general education teacher(s), parents, and student).

Please fill out this form if you are interested in more information on how we can serve your student. 

Tier 1: $15,175.00

Students at the Tier 1 level are on usually on grade level or slightly below grade level and need instructional support to progress, which requires collaboration between the special education teacher and general education teacher. Accommodations are provided through differentiated assessment where students can show their skills in various ways. These students need specialized instruction or behavioral approaches to be successful, but do not require an additional paraprofessional support at all times. Parents receive  progress reports for IEP goals on a quarterly basis. 

Tier 2: $19,725.00

Students at the Tier 2 level are performing at least 1-2 grade levels below and/or have behavioral difficulties that require additional support beyond the classroom management plan. For these students, ongoing planning and collaboration is needed, often requiring an additional paraprofessional support. Curriculum content may be modified as appropriate to teach the same concepts that the general education class is learning, but through differentiated instruction and evidence-based practices. Parents receive progress reports for IEP goals on a monthly basis. 

Tier 3: $26,475.00

Students at the Tier 3 level are typically significantly below grade level in one or more academic and/or behavioral areas, which requires individualized instruction and/or behavioral approaches throughout the school day. Students at this tier level need carefully planned lesson development and specific techniques to deliver instruction within the context of the general education classroom. The content is related to the general education classroom curriculum but may also focus on instruction for independent functioning, social and communication skills.
