Department Overview

Department Functions

Adapted Physical Education (APE) is a special education service that provides school-aged children with special needs access to the physical education curriculum. The APE specialists provide direct and consultative services to students to allow for their participation in the general physical education program, as well as consult with the general physical education specialist on lesson modification and accommodations. The APE specialist may also provide staff with playground modifications, or recess accommodations for students with special needs.

The APE department also collaborates with Special Olympics, Nevada and the Paralympic Sports Club, providing the opportunity for students with disabilities to participate in competitive events and after-school activities.
