Instructional Services Center ISC


Highly Intensive Special Education

The Instructional Services Center (ISC) is a day treatment program within Westminster Public Schools that provides highly intensive special education services to students with emotional disabilities who need a structured, therapeutic educational setting.


The ISC will provide comprehensive, culturally sensitive academic and therapeutic services in a safe, structured, and nurturing environment to students ages 5-17 who have significant emotional and behavioral disabilities.

Program Values

The ISC day treatment program operates through a Strength-Based treatment model which incorporates the following values:

  • All children are treated as individuals with dignity and worth
  • We respect each child’s ability and potential for positive growth
  • The display of problematic behaviors/issues presents an opportunity for children to learn new skills
  • We create a safe, supportive, predictable environment which fosters a child’s sense of health and well-being
  • We hold students accountable while teaching them effective decision-making skills
  • All interventions are guided by what is in the best interest of the child
  • We teach students skills based upon individualized assessments of their academic and therapeutic needs
  • We actively involve students in the problem-solving process 

Goal Statement

The ISC program’s goal is to support all students in achieving their academic and behavior goals to successfully transition back to a lesser restrictive educational environment within 6-8 months of placement at the ISC.
