Lake Superior Academy

Special Education

New Hope Public School Academy will offer in-school coordinated wraparound services with Integrated Student Supports overseen by a dedicated School Social Worker. Under this model, all students, regardless of their background or disability, will received a social services needs screening.

In addition, the Academy’s contracted Education Service Provider, Choice Schools Associates, provides a special education supervisor that supports school leaders and staff at all of their schools according to their management agreement. This supervisor coordinates outside ancillary services that are required for the care of students and oversees special education compliance. The supervisor is also available to consult with school leaders and teachers on complex IEPs and challenging student behaviors as related to special education, and maintains a close relationship with special education support teams from each ISD where their schools are located. The combination of providing both outside and inside student supports allows for enhanced services and better goal-setting than what is found in the local traditional districts, with the result of increasing overall academic achievement for students with disabilities.
