Significant Support Needs (SSN)

Significant Support Needs (aka Herman's Happy Learners) is our program to help our most impacted students.

From Our District Website:

SSN (Significant Support Needs) Center-Based Programs - Students identified with intellectual disabilities and/or multiple disabilities (A child with two or more areas of significant impairment, one of which shall be an intellectual disability) often require programming in SSN center-based programs.  SSN programs provide specialized instruction aligned with Colorado's Extended Evidence Outcomes, and focus on the development of functional academic skills, communication, social skills, adaptive skills and life skills.  SSN programming is designed to increase students' independence throughout their education.  Students in center-based programs access general education classrooms based on their individual needs.  The programming is flexible and individualized, and not entirely self-contained.
