PALS stands for Practical Academics and Living Skills, and are self-contained classrooms for students with special needs. The PALS Programs are set up to help students on their specific ability level. Students may receive Special Education services and be placed in the PALS program based on assessments and individual need. PALS students are taught based on their specific needs in order to meet state standards and academic goals. Other services provided to our students who qualify for more support include Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy.
