We care about the success of all South Shore Charter Public School students. The goal of Learning Services is to assist all students in reaching their maximum academic potential. South Shore Charter Public School provides and arranges for the provision of each element of the IEPs of students in need of special education from the ages of 5 until their 22nd birthday. SSCPS ensures a continuum of services and alternative environmental environments are available to meet the needs of all students with disabilities. SSCPS takes all steps necessary to ensure compliance with all elements of the IEP.

SPECIAL EDUCATION CONTINUUM OF SERVICEAt South Shore Charter Public School, we believe that students learn through a variety of modalities. Our staff is expected to deliver instructional and support services that will be the most effective in helping students achieve their maximum level of success in school.  SSCPS provides a continuum of services through our Learning Services Department and as a result, our program is continually changing depending on our population of students and their needs.  Currently SSCPS promotes an inclusion model with the understanding that no single model of special education can be expected to meet the needs of all students.  In addition to inclusion, SSCPS also has pull-out services and small class instruction for students who require it.

The range of special education services and related service options available to students attending SSCPS can be found below.
