Questar III’s NYSAA 4:1:2 program provides a highly structured and intensive educational option for students with emotional and behavioral disabilities requiring multiple levels of supports at high levels of frequency and duration. Students in this program have the opportunity to work towards a Skills and Achievement Credential while strengthening their social and emotional skills. The program provides a rigorous school-wide behavioral management system and highly structured classroom environment. A focus on the development of social skills, problem-solving abilities, and conflict resolution practices are of primary importance. The Special Education 4:1:2 includes child psychiatric consultation, social work and psychology support, behavior specialist consultation, physical education or adaptive physical education, and access as needed to crisis intervention and transition planning services. The program is comprised of four students, one teacher, and two teaching assistants.
Note: Questar III’s classroom programs run September through June with an extended school year option.
