Special Education Services
 
The West Jefferson HIlls School District provides a personalized learning curriculum to meet the needs of every student. Special Education services provide support programs with teams of trained personnel in each of the five schools to assist and guide students who are experiencing learning or social emotional difficulties. Our staff have been trained in Safety-Care Behavioral Safety Training, a leading crisis prevention training course focusing on how to prevent behavioral challenges, de-escalate early and manage behaviors safely. The curriculum is founded upon evidence-based research in the areas of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) which we believe offers our staff and those we serve with the best strategies available. Safety-Care is consistent with our goal to maintain a comfortable, safe and learning environment and it meets or exceeds the accreditation standards outlined by CARF, JCAHO, COA and other agencies concerned with quality care. If you have additional questions regarding Safety-Care and its implementation, don’t hesitate to ask.
