About Independent Education Programs, Inc.

Independent Education Programs is a non-public special education program, publicly funded to provide special education services to students with intense behavioral needs. Our program is designed to work with special education children that have traditionally not been successful in a public school setting and require a more structured and highly staffed outcome based educational environment. 
We provide: 

  • Highly trained staff, with a 1 :4 stafl7student ratio of 1 teacher and 2 aides for each of our classrooms.
  • Individualized, reality based academic instruction in all curriculum areas based on California Common Core standards which is provided by credentialed special education teachers and trained, full-time teacher's aides/behavior aids.
  • Classroom and community based independent living skills training.
  • Hands on pre-vocational training designed to prepare students for entry-level jobs in the community. This includes:
Structured social skills and communication skills training infused in the curriculum.
Community service and service learning activities.
Team building activities.
  • Comprehensive transition planning and services designed to enable students to ransition back to their home school district or a less restrictive educational setting.
  • A highly structured, closely monitored behavior management system utilizing a combination of current best practices, cognitive reality therapy, and behavior modification. The system provides immediate consistent feedback and response to targeted behavior and replacement behavior in a nurturing environment by staff that are trained and retrained periodically.
  • Behavior intervention services and crisis intervention pursuant to positive behavior intervention regulations including early behavior intervention services in the public school to prevent the need for placement in a more restrictive setting, functional analysis of behavior, case management, and reporting.
  • Psychological services, social worker services, and mental health services are integrated into the school program.
  • Daily contact with parents/care providers to communicate daily behavioral progress and pertinent information.
  • Itinerant behavior intervention services for public schools including staff training, consultation, and behavior support services.
  • Specialized transportation services
