SOUTHEASTERN COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS (SECEP), a regional public-school consortium located in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, provides services for students with special and alternative needs through five programs:
The Autism Spectrum Program (ASP): Provides individualized academic and social instruction for students who exhibit characteristics of autism or developmental disabilities with communication, social skill deficits, and challenging behavior.
The Educational & Behavioral Interventions for Challenging Students Program (EBICS): Provides individualized academic, life, and social instruction for students who have an intellectual disability and exhibit challenging behavior.
The Re-Education Program (Re-ED): Provides individualized academic and social instruction for students that exhibit severe emotional/behavioral disabilities.
The Raising Expectations and Abilities for Children with Complex Health Needs Program (REACH): Provides a high-quality educational program that maximizes potential for students with complex medical needs who are parentally placed in either St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children or Lake Taylor Transitional Hosipital.
The Tidewater Regional Alternative Educational Program (TRAEP): Provides academic instruction to students who have had multiple long-term suspensions or need transitional placement when returning from a state learning center.
All programs individualize academic instruction, increase pro-social skills, and build partnerships with students, families, and the communities by providing a safe and nurturing environment for students.
