These services are provided based on the individual needs of the student. After a team, comprised of educational professionals and the parent(s), determines a student's unique needs and considers a variety of factors, an Individual Education Program (IEP) is created. An IEP is a legal document that describes how The O'Farrell Charter School provides services to a student with exceptional needs. Special education support and services are provided under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004).
