Special education services
The Special Education staff at KCC work in collaboration with a student’s home high school to provide services for students experiencing a disability. A special education teacher assistant is assigned to each KCC class. The teacher assistant, in collaboration with the KCC special education department chair, monitors student progress and provides individual assistance to students as needed. Students select a KCC class with help and assistance from their home high school Transition Specialist. Students may enter a regular vocational program or our Work Readiness program depending on the student’s individual needs and goals.
