What is a self-contained special education class?

This is full-time, outside-of-general-education instruction for some students with IEPs. In DCPS, this includes students who are already enrolled in Early Learning Supports (ELS), Communication and Education Supports (CES), Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH), Behavior and Education Supports (BES), Independence and Learning Supports (ILS), Medical and Educational Supports (MES) and Specific Learning Supports (SLS). Students in self-contained programs and River Terrace Education Campus will be welcomed back at half student capacity and full staff capacity.
