Special Education

At STEM School Highlands Ranch, we provide an integrated support system to help students on an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) bridge the gaps in their learning.  Students on an IEP are scheduled to maximize contact time between the traditional classroom teacher, learning support specialist and fellow students.  

If your student is not currently enrolled in Special Education and you have concerns regarding their progress, please see the Response to Intervention page under Educational Support.


Special Education Communication Pathway
If you have questions please use the communication pathway below:

  • Classroom Teacher > Special Education Case Manager > Principal > Executive Director
  • Please be sure to contact the specific classroom teacher before contacting the case manager.


IEP Meeting Standards of Operations

  • IEP meetings are scheduled for one hour.  If additional time is needed, a second meeting will be scheduled.  Please review the IEP and supporting documentation before attending the IEP meeting.  
  • IEP team meetings occur once per week.  Be aware that questions requiring a team response could be delayed.
STEM School Highlands Ranch enrollment is filled by a lottery. There is no testing required to apply to our school.
