YES Prep Public Schools

Special Populations

At YES Prep, we are committed to working with families to make sure all of our students get the support they need to be successful.  In order to ensure that ALL students have access to a college-ready education, YES Prep offers a variety of supports and services to students who have identified needs.  You can find more information about each of our departments by clicking the page in the menu on the right.  Read below for more information about how to refer your student for services from one of our departments.

Our Vision

We will ensure that in every school, in every classroom, every day, ALL students at YES Prep engage in rigorous, aligned, and active learning, dramatically increasing college readiness.  We will embrace the abilities of all students, empowering them to succeed in rigorous post-secondary opportunities and lead choice-filled lives. 

Referrals to Special Populations

For those students who are having difficulty in the regular classroom, all school districts and open enrollment charter schools must consider tutorial, compensatory, and other academic or behavior support services that are available to all students, including a process based on Response to Intervention (RtI). The implementation of RtI has the potential to have a positive impact on the ability of districts and charter schools to meet the needs of all struggling students.  

If a student is experiencing learning difficulties, his or her guardian may contact the individual(s) listed below to learn about the school’s overall general education referral or screening system for support services. This system links students to a variety of support options, including making a referral for a special education evaluation or for a Section 504 evaluation to determine if the student needs specific aids, accommodations, or services. A guardian may request an evaluation for special education or Section 504 services at any time.
