About Intra-Dakota Educational Alternative (IDEA)

The Intra-Dakota Educational Alternative (IDEA)  stresses academics with significant emphasis on helping each student develop appropriate classroom behaviors and skills that will allow students to function in a general classroom setting. As a student progresses, they may have the opportunity to spend more time in their home school setting. Student progress is monitored and assisted by close working relations with the student’s resident district staff, the student’s parents, and the student. There are also transition activities available for high school-aged students.  The IDEA program provides services to students with unique needs from kindergarten through age 22. Strong collaboration between special education teachers, Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs), school social workers, a school nurse, and paraprofessionals are provided to support students with their behavioral and academic needs according to a student’s IEP and evaluation.
