Functional Life Skills
The Functional Life Skills (FLS) curriculum is a service and support option on a continuum designed to meet the diverse needs of students with significant cognitive disabilities and adaptive disabilities which prevents them from accessing the general education curriculum.
Students in FLS will access and participate in the grade level Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) through activities that focus on prerequisite skills at an emerging learning level. They will demonstrate performance objectives that may include concrete, real-life applications of the TEKS as appropriate to the student abilities and needs. Further, they will demonstrate mastery of functional life skills through the implementation of their Individual Education Plan (IEP) by participating in classroom, school, and community-based student-centered activities.
During a school closure or extended time away from school, services will continue to be provided virtually as determined by the ARD committee.
Each campus has a Special Education Supervisor who will assist parents and answer specific questions regarding student programs or concerns.
