The Special Education Program

The special needs students at Belmar Elementary receive supportive instruction, in the least restrictive environment, in the subject areas of Math, Reading, and Language Arts. Varied instructional strategies and reinforcement techniques enable the students to become more proficient in these subjects.

Resource Center and special class placements enable students to receive the appropriate level of service in both regular education and special education.

The teachers who work with the special needs children work in conjunction with the Child Study Team.
