Home-Exceptional Student Services

Here at Colorado Early Colleges-Parker (CECP), we recognize that students have a wide variety of needs and those needs may impact their daily and academic functioning. Our administration knows that learning and health, whether social, emotional or physical, goes hand in hand with being able to learn.  

The Exceptional Student Services unit assesses, facilitates meetings and implements programs for students who have a wide variety of needs, i.e., Special Education (SPED), Gifted and Talented (ALP), English as a Second Language (ESL) and Individualized Education Plans (IEP) and Section 504 Plans. We have certified SPED teachers that work together, along with a resource coordinator. We are able to meet students’ needs in both the high school and collegiate curricula.

We also have a school psychologist, a district nurse and a health aide who provide support to students and staff and will be an instrumental part of our exceptional student services team, Our prevention specialist will help us thoughtfully design and implement programming, outreach and resources for our unique community. Our prevention specialist will also be instrumental in serving on our crisis team as well.

Our two newest members of our team help us to meet more need in a systemic way. Our health aide and parapro will help provide support to both our health services and exceptional student division, as well as increase our nutritional offerings in our café. Our prevention specialist will help us thoughtfully design and implement programming, outreach and resources for our unique community.
