Exceptional Student Services

Special education

The Exceptional Student Service Department works to ensure that all eligible students with disabilities are provided a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. We strive to ensure that Montessori del Mundo is in compliance with the Federal Law – Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). We believe all students are general education students first and that Special Education is a service – not a place.

 

Section 504

Our school provides 504 evaluations and plans in order to provide each student with disabilities or a handicap equal access to the school environment. Montessori del Mundo follows federal guidelines under Section 504 in order to meet student needs and be in compliance with the law.


Gifted and talented

“Gifted and talented children are those persons between the ages of five and twenty-one whose abilities, talents and potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational needs.” – Colorado Department of Education
