    Special Populations Support

    In a joint effort with CareerConnect, we are providing support to not only Special Education students, but also students with additional barriers to success. Our ACE Regional Coordinator supports students who fall under the Perkins defiition of Special Populations (pregnant/parenting, ELA, foster-involved, low SES) with career exploration, connections to DPS programming across the district, internship and job search support. This role works primarily through the Pathways Schools, but is available to support students at all schools who have additional needs and supports in their career and college-related pursuits.
