  • Itinerant Teachers of the Visually Impaired (TVI):  Once a student is determined to be blind or partially sighted through an optometrist or ophthalmologist exam, an itinerant teacher provides access to the curriculum for the VI students through the provision of assistive technology, collaborating with all staff.

The IEP teams determine whether or not a student may require home- to- school transportation within district boundaries and is not able to access the General Education transportation due to one of the four following reasons:  Orthopedic impairments; Severe emotional disturbance or serious medical needs; Severe developmental delays; Appropriate programs unavailable at home school.  Clovis Unified uses its own buses to transport eligible students.

  • Adapted Physical Education (APE): addresses the significant delays in loco motor and object control skills, as well as body and spatial awareness that could possibly keep the student from full participation in General Education P.E.    Adapted PE specialists provide a continuum of PE services; direct instruction PE services (aligned with state PE standards), collaborate or co-teach with general education PE instructor, consult with teachers on adapting or modifying PE activities, or consult on Specially Designed PE activities with special education teachers.
