Crown Point Community School Corporation believes that all students can learn, but the path to excellence is different for each child. This is particularly true of the children who come to us with special needs.
Several programs provide the help these children need to make the most of their educational experiences and reach their full potential. Children with mental, physical and/or emotional disabilities, as well as learning disabilities, receive support from The Department for Exceptional Learners.

Services are offered for students in pre-school through 12th grade and, in some cases, to age 22. Support for each learner is grounded in the Individualized Educational Plan (IEP), and may range from assistance in the general education classroom, to direct instruction in special education classes.


EL Mission Statement:

Every student has a right to be educated in a manner and within a setting that respects individual diversity, where all students are accepted and meet the challenges of enhancing their learning experience. The staff, students, parents, and community share in the responsibility for the social, emotional, and academic development of students as lifelong learners, effective communicators, and contributing citizens. Together we shape the future…one child at a time.

EL Core Beliefs or Values:

  • All students can learn
  • Decisions are student centered
  • School climate is positive and focused
  • Partnership between parents, students, teachers
  • Students are responsible for their own learning
