The Special Education program at Chico High includes the Resource Specialist Program, the SH Classes, and the Special Day Classes.
 
The Resource Specialist Program is for students with average or above average abilities who have discrepancies between ability and academic levels as defined by law.  The majority of the student's day is spent in the regular program.  The Resource Specialist provides consultation to parents and regular staff members in areas such as assessment, curriculum and classroom management.
 
Special Day Classes are for students with more intensive educational needs, when education in regular classes with the use of supplementary aides and services cannot be achieved satisfactorily.  Typically 50% or more of the student's day is spent in Special Day Classes.
 
Eligibility for Special Education classes is determined by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team.
