What is the Resource Room?
Resource rooms are classrooms (sometimes smaller classrooms) where a special education program can be delivered to a student with a disability. It is for the student who qualifies for either a special class or regular class placement but needs some special instruction in an individualized or small group setting for a portion of the day. Individual needs are supported in resource rooms as defined by the student’s IEP. Sometimes this form of support is called resource, replacement or pull out. The child getting this type of support will receive some time in the resource room (which refers to the pull out portion of the day) and some time in the regular classroom with modifications and or accommodations.
