Integrated Co-Teaching

Integrated Co-Teaching

Integrated Co-Teaching (ICT) classrooms include students with and without disabilities and have two teachers, a general education teacher and a special education teacher. The teachers work together throughout the day to adapt and modify instruction for your child and make sure the entire class has access to the general education curriculum. Students may be in an ICT classroom all day or for a portion of the day.

Children receiving ICT may also receive related services, assistive technology, para­professional services or other supplementary aids and services if needed. The child’s IEP must indicate: 

  • Whether the service is full-time or part-time
  • The number of periods each day he or she will receive the services, and
  • The area of instruction (for example, mathematics) for which the student will be receiving this service

The number of students with disabilities in an ICT class may not exceed 40% of the total class register or a maximum of 12.
