Hoosier Academy at Indianapolis (Hoosier) follows federal and state guidelines to provide a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to students eligible for special education services under the supervision of the school’s special education department. The state special education manual serves as a basis for policies and procedures for the special education department.
Hoosier's special education department is led by the special education manager and is supported by the Stride K12 regional and national special programs managers.
How We Communicate
As Hoosier is a virtual learning environment, special educational services and support are provided through:
- online meeting rooms,
- phone meetings, and
- electronic communications.
This environment requires constant communication from not only teachers and staff at the school but also from parents, students, and designated Learning Coaches in order for this educational experience to be successful.
Hoosier will provide any necessary accommodations, as determined by the child’s IEP team, to provide nonacademic and extracurricular services and activities in the manner necessary to afford children with disabilities an equal opportunity for participation in those services and activities as provided to students without disabilities. Nonacademic and extracurricular services and activities include:
- Counseling services
- Health services
- Recreational activities
- Special interest groups or clubs sponsored by the school district
Referrals to agencies that provide assistance to individuals with disabilities and employment of students, including employment by the school district and assistance in making outside employment available
