Special Education

Flagstaff Academy Charter School is subject to all federal and state laws under IDEA for special education services. Flagstaff Academy will purchase all special education services from the St. Vrain Valley School District and will be accountable to the District Board of Education regarding compliance with federal and state special education and disability laws.

NASET logoFlagstaff Academy's Special Education program has been recognized by the National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET) as a 2019 NASET Exceptional Charter School in Special Education, the highest level of recognition a charter school can achieve. The honor reflects the "rigorous professional criteria which demonstrate truly exceptional dedication, commitment, and achievement in the field of special education." This is the second year that Flagstaff Academy's Special Education department has received this honor. 

In conjunction with St. Vrain Valley School District, Flagstaff Academy provides services required by the Individual Education Plans (IEPs), including, but not limited to, initial evaluations and re-evaluations, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, audiology, low vision specialist services, autism specialist services, teacher of the deaf, paraprofessional services, sign interpreters, school psychology services, school health care services, and transportation services required by student IEPs.
