The district is committed to serving its students with special needs in the least restrictive environment. The Alpha Program is located at each Rich Township High School campus providing special education services to students with significant intellectual, physical, and/or communication challenges. During the students stay in the program the focus is on acquiring the necessary academic, functional, and vocational skills that will support the student’s postsecondary goals.
The district maintains membership in the SPEED Cooperative which assists the school district in fulfilling its obligation to the district’s special needs population. If necessary, students may also be placed in nonpublic special education programs or special education facilities.
