The Dubuque Community School District is committed to preparing all students for a lifetime of success. The Summit Program is designed to serve students who have met the district’s graduation criteria and are working to develop the skills needed to be as independent as possible.
Much like mountain climbing, our students and their families have set their goal of reaching the summit. To get there requires hard work and collaboration. It is energizing, motivating, frustrating, challenging and rewarding.
And, just like mountain climbers, our students and families are not alone in this process. The instructors they work with in the program are their personal mentor along the way to guide them and encourage them.
Students must be 18 or older, be receiving special education services, have met graduation criteria and have unmet IEP goals. Additional requirements exist. Please contact the special education department for details.
