Special Education Department

Welcome to the Special Education department! We are dedicated to helping every student at McCann achieve their full potential. Through the special education process, we assist eligible students in meeting academic and career goals that will prepare them for the transition to college and/or the world of work. Our goal is to help students who are served through IEPs or 504 Plans to learn the skills and strategies they 

Our faculty consists of a Director of Student Services, four special education teachers, and classroom assistants. Additionally, we have a team of consultants/service providers who work with us to provide counseling, physical therapy, speech therapy or other specialized services as needed. We offer a full range of special education services that include the following:

  • co-teaching and consultation with regular education teachers (including technical/vocational instructors)
  • resource room classes for Literature/Writing, Math, and Academic Support, as determined through a students IEP or 504 Plan
  • academic supports in regular education classes for students that need assistance accessing the regular education curriculum

We have a small but active group of parents/guardians who are members of our Parent Advisory Council (PAC). Throughout the year, they may host a guest speaker or panel discussion, sponor workshops on topics such as technology, transitioning to college, or accessing adult services, and meet to provide feedback and suggestions about their children’s services. We invite you to become part of that group!
