For students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) Connections Academy provides virtual special education services that range from consultation, curriculum accommodations, collaboration with learning coaches and general education teachers, to virtual direct instruction. Connections Academy can provide the following related services: Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Counseling, and Speech Therapy. If you have questions, please contact the Colorado Connections Academy Director of Special Education, Nicole Elliott at 303-397-6845.
During the enrollment process the Colorado Connections Academy Special Education department will review the student’s IEP and most recent evaluation and determination of eligibility. Please upload all documents to avoid a delay in processing. The team will make a decision on if the student's needs can be met in this setting. Because Colorado Connections Academy is not a full continuum of services, some enrollment will be denied.
For eligible students with disabilities who do not require special education, Connections Academy may develop and implements Section 504 plans that detail appropriate accommodations. Colorado Connections Academy also provides students with accessibility through resources tailored to each student’s individual abilities and needs, including assistive technologies and individualized support. You can also obtain 24-hour technical support by calling the Accessibility Hotline at 1-888-639-5960.
