Special Education Services
At VLACS, students work at a pace that meets their needs and have the opportunity to redo assignments, tests, and projects as they work toward mastery of competencies. In many cases, our learning model meets the requirements prescribed in IEPs. As per the IEP, our staff works with the student’s school district to create a positive learning experience when additional support is required. As per New Hampshire law, a student’s resident district shall have the responsibility, including financial responsibility, to ensure the provision of special education and related services in the child’s IEP. New Hampshire law does not apply to out-of-state students.
