Special education services are provided to Mekeel’s students by Scotia-Glenville Central School District, the public district in which our building is located. Special education teachers contracted through the public school district but housed on our campus work closely with Mekeel’s faculty to provide accommodations to students with exceptional needs.
Mekeel’s Intervention Program provides additional help to elementary and middle school students in reading and mathematics. Small groups (4-7) of students are organized by area of academic need and instructed by the Resource Room/Intervention Teacher in areas of deficiency. This additional and specific support is designed to help students close gaps in learning in order to bring the student up to meeting grade level expectations.
For more information regarding special education at MCA, please contact Mrs. Darling, our Director of Curriculum and Instruction.
