The ‘Extended Resource Room’ is a more specialized placement than the traditional ‘Resource Room’ and offers specialized instruction in pre-academic, academic and functional behavioral support for students requiring a higher level of support.
Four 'Extended Resource Rooms' are available throughout the district at each of our different grade spans - our elementary program is located at Truman Elementary, with the others found at Monroe Intermediate School, Lincoln Middle School, and our secondary program at Green River High School.
Placement into the 'Extended Resource Room' Program is an IEP team decision and is based on specific student needs and discussion regarding the placement that can meet those needs most appropriately. The 'Extended Resource Room' placement is a decision that is considered yearly by the IEP team. The decision is made after a thorough review of the IEP components which may include present levels of performance, goals/objectives, accommodations, modifications, supplementary aids and services, state and district assessments, behavior intervention plans, teacher and parental input, and results from any previous evaluations.
