Exceptional Student Services

Here at Colorado Early Colleges Castle Rock (CECCR), 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 Learning Plan (IEP) 504 Plans. We have certified SPED teachers that work together as a resource coordinator and a learning specialist. We are able to meet students’ needs in both the high school and collegiate curricula. 


We also have a School Psychologist and School Nurse as a part of our ESSU on campus every day to help intervene in crises, provide resources and implement services and programming as needed. Any parent, teacher, or student can request assistance for themselves or a student they know. Our nurse also provides health services to monitor illness, injury, social-emotional support, resource management, manages vaccination and immunization compliance, vision and hearing screenings, and health education. 


An online referral service is being created to allow anyone from our campus community to submit an anonymous referral.
