Westview High School
is committed to promoting life-long learning in all students. By
providing smaller class size and tailored instruction, we are better
able to meet the individual needs of students with various learning
disabilities or other factors that can interfere with academic success.
Students who work with our special education staff meet the eligibility
requirements under federal law IDEA for an Individualized Education
Program (IEP). The majority of students with an IEP participate in
general education classes with their high school peers and work toward a
standard Oregon Diploma with the support of a Westview case manager to
oversee the implementation of the IEP. Some students may also be
enrolled in special support classes based on teacher recommendation and
IEP team agreements.
Students in the Resource Room, program (the
majority of our students on an IEP), have a class with their case
manager. Students receive special instruction in areas that support
their IEP goals and/or learn organizational strategies to help them be

physical education, computer skills, and industrial arts.

all core and elective instruction in classes with the general education

Seminar to support their IEP goals and learn organizational strategies.
