As a SETTS teacher you might:
- Provide specially designed and/or supplemental instruction to support the participation of the student with a disability in the general education classroom.
- Provide consultation to the student's general education teacher.
- These services are designed to be flexible, helping students to remain in the general education classroom and use the combined expertise of both the general and special education teacher. They may be provided within the general education classroom or in a separate location. Group size for SETSS provided in the general education classroom or in a separate location may not exceed a maximum of eight students.
- Many special education teachers are no longer assigned to one program. Instead, they may be providing instruction in self-contained classes or integrated co-teaching classes in addition to providing SETSS services. The reform did not change teachers’ rights with respect to program preference. Special education teachers at all levels have the right to express a preference for program designation (ICT, self-contained, SETSS, etc.) and age range.
