    The physical school a student attends is the student’s assignment. Across the District, every school offers Resource special education services. Many, but not all, schools offer Access, Social/ Emotional, Focus, and Distinct intensive services. Limited schools provide unique placements and assignments including services for DHH, vision, and medically fragile students.
