ABOUT WOODALL

 

THE PROGRAM

The Woodall Program operating in-center is age appropriate for students in grade levels K – 8. The IEP placement committee upon initial placement in the Woodall/GNETS class, analyses and considers current placement data to determine the appropriate time and services that will be provided by the GNETS Program. Eligible students are served in the self-contained GNETS classroom. If a transition of service seems appropriate for a student, the IEP placement committee can determine through all relevant documentation and review of progress monitoring data that a transition is needed into another least restrictive environment along the most appropriate continuum of services.

The Carver High School Satellite Program is age appropriate for students in grade levels 9 – 12.
