Our Special Education Program

At Monterey Bay Charter School, our focus is to provide each student with high quality, effective specialized academic instruction and related support services to support each learner in achieving their full educational, emotional, vocational, and social potential.

Our highly qualified staff are trained in the areas of teaching (academics), speech and language, occupational therapy, and counseling. Our services may include support in a variety of on-campus settings, including push-in support (trained staff going into the classroom to support a learner or a small group of learners in the general education setting) and pull-out support (student is taken out of general education classroom individually or in a small group). The type of support each student needs, and how it is delivered, is determined through evaluations/assessments and in collaboration with parents and the school’s IEP Team (Individualized Education Program).

Our team is made up of the following:

  • 1 Special Education Program Manager
  • 2 Education specialists (K-5, 6-8)
  • 4 Para-educators
  • 2 Speech and Language Pathologists (K-1, 2-8)
  • 1 Occupational Therapist
  • 1 School Counselor
  • 2 Counseling interns
