Opportunity Room


Special Day Class

Serves students who are habitually truant, irregular in attendance, insubordinate, disorderly, or failing academically.

Opportunity Education provides a supportive environment with specialized curriculum, instruction, guidance and counseling, psychological services, and tutorial assistance to help students overcome barriers to learning. It should not be viewed as a permanent placement for resistant learners but as a short-term intervention to ensure that students will succeed when they return to their regular classrooms.

An intensive educational program designed for children with special needs. A child may be eligible if he/she demonstrates severe mental or emotional disorders and/or learning disabilities.

These problems must be severe enough to cause difficulty in learning in a regular school setting or in alternative less-intensive special education programs.
