Special Education Department
Welcome to the Special Education Department at Plano East Senior High School.
The Special Education department serves a wide range of needs for all of our students, including: academics, behavior, speech, counseling, auditory impairments and vision impairments.
Students receiving our services are covered across all areas of academics from honors classes to our life skills classes. All of our students receive some form of accommodations to help them be successul in the classroom. Another portion of our students also receive modifications, which is reducing the level of exposure to the general educaiton TEKS, to best meet the needs of these students. All of our students are involved in the General Education, in some way, whether it is for their core classes or their electives.
All of our students work directly with their monitor teachers and develop a transition plan to help guide them with their post-secondary goals and they are also given various activities and strategies to assist them in accomplishing these post-secondary goals.
