HDESD Interpreters provide educational access to deaf and hard of hearing students through ASL/English interpreting.
The Options Program is a behavior program with two levels for both elementary and middle school students. We serve students eligible for special education. Students gain both academic and social/behavioral skills. This is a half-day program and the student may attend their home school for the remainder of the day. Students attend the program for varying lengths of time based on the least restrictive environment that will support their needs. In the Options Program the students learn skills and practice them in their home school so that they can transition back to their school full day when they are ready.
