Students with Disabilities and Special Education Needs

St. Vrain Valley Schools does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation (including transgender status), or disability in its programs or activities.

The APEX Homeschool Program is sponsored by the St. Vrain Schools and provides 1-day per week classes for students whose primary means of education is homeschooling with the parents being the students’ primary educators. This program does not discriminate based upon any of the aforementioned reasons in its enrollment.

If a qualified homeschool student desires to apply to APEX and that student requires specific accommodations related to a disability in order to access the courses, APEX will engage in an individualized inquiry regarding the student’s needs. The inquiry will be a meeting which will include a minimum of the student’s parents and/or guardians, a district special education representative, and a representative from APEX. The individualized inquiry will be conducted to determine if and how the program may support a qualified student to participate in the APEX courses. APEX enrollment process affords qualified students with disabilities an equal opportunity for participation.

Because APEX does not provide a full-time program, it does not provide the full range of IEP services that are provided elsewhere in the District. If your student has or needs an IEP, please contact Laura Hess, the Executive Director of Special Education at Hess_Laura@svvsd.org for assistance in finding an appropriate placement for your student.
