I'm just curious about other schools and states.

How many do you have on your caseload?
Do you teach self-contained or resource?
What grade levels?
How big is your school?
How many special ed teachers do you have?

For me:
How many do you have on your caseload? I have 19 currently but probably some more will be added as the year goes on. 7 of these students are consult only but I don't know if they will be able to stay that way.
Do you teach self-contained or resource? Resource
What grade levels? K-3
How big is your school? 900+ students
How many special ed teachers do you have? There are 4 of us. I do K-3 resource. There's a 4th grade resource teacher and a 5th grade resource teacher. Then 1 self-contained K-5 classroom.

My caseload is 8.
I teach in a self-contained classroom with students with Emotional and Behavioral problems. My class this year is 4th grade, but I have had classrooms that have had students ranging from K-2.

Our school has 200 students.

There are 6 self contained classroom teachers in our building, as well as one support room teacher for students in crisis. We also have 3 full time social workers on staff. There is a resource teacher as well for students not in self contained classrooms.

How many do you have on your caseload? I go between 2 buildings. Legally we can have 20 total. I have 10 in one school and 4 in the other school. BUT...with RtI I have picked up 2 in one school and 1 in the other that are in tier 3. My guess is all 3 will eventually get IEP's bringing me to 16.
Do you teach self-contained or resource? I'm resource
What grade levels? K-2, but I see a couple of 4th graders in one of my buildings to fill in minutes but they have a different case manager.
How big is your school? I'm not sure how big one building is, I know the other has 450 kids.
How many special ed teachers do you have? One building has 2 full-time and one part-time (me) and the other building has one full-time and one part-time (me again ). Oh, and both buildings have self-contained teachers.

I currently have 28 on my caseload. That is the legal max and I will go over soon , but nothing will be done.

I teach resource grades K-5.

My school has about 750 students.

We have 4 special Ed teachers including myself. 2 teach mild/mod self contained classes, 1 teaches mod/sev and I do resource. We are also expected to be run Rti. We are very impacted and set up for failure. That said I do my best and work hard for my students!

I teach self-contained kids that are mentally handicapped. I have 10 students in 4th and 5th grade and 1 in 2nd grade. We have 2 units at our school. The 2nd grader is with me due to major medical issues~ William's Syndrome with serious blood pressure problems. I moved up with my class and chose to take him with me. I must monitor his blood pressure throughout the day and I choose to administer his blood pressure medication (as opposed to the office staff). I have a teacher assistant also. She is my "angel" and I couldn't do the job I do each day without her by my side. I have a wonderful class and feel very blessed. Because they are so wonderful, it allows me to try so many of the things that I learned about on PT this summer!

I have 16 students.

I teach both self contained and resource. I have 8 self contained and 8 resource.

I have k-3 students.

Our school has about 450-500 students.

We have two ESE teachers, me and another 3-5 teacher who does self contained and resource.

I really wish we could hire one teacher to do just resource because doing both is very challenging.

I have 8 students in an Autistic Support Classroom.

Teach both self contained and resource.

My room is for grades 3-5 but there are no autistic 4th graders this year???

My building (k-5) has about 280 students, is one of 4 elementary and we house all of the autistic support students for the district.

There are 3 autistic support teachers in the building: K-1, 1-2, and 3-5.

We will be re-configuring elem./middle schools next year, so when 5th goes to middle school I'm not sure where I'll be.

How many do you have on your caseload?
I have 18 officially right now, but 2 2nd graders from the lower grade Sped Class will most likely be added to my class soon, because my class is a "better fit", and 1 6th grader may be moving over from the resource program.

Do you teach self-contained or resource? Self-contained

What grade levels? Currently 3-7 but will be 2-7 soon
How big is your school? 560 or so
How many special ed teachers do you have? We have 2 special ed teachers. I have 3-7 self contained and the lower grade class is K-2 with 8 kids, 2 who will be mine soon. The lower grade teacher also is the resource teacher for the school and serves 45 students ( all grades) with two paraeducators to assist.

This year has gotten off to a rocky start, with so many kids,curriculums and IEP'S.

How many do you have on your caseload?
26 Right now

Do you teach self-contained or resource?
Mostly resource

What grade levels? 4,5,& 6

How big is your school?
About 315

How many special ed teachers do you have?
1

My principal says she expects a lesson plan. My reply, would you show me how to write a plan that fits 26 students and 20 grade level teachers? I'm still waiting. I generally make notes and use the pacing guide when I go into the various classes. I keep plenty of antedotal notes, because most teachers are working on different skills, some are fast others are behind. If I need to do something different that's working for you please advise.

I have 11. I will lose 1 and gain 2 by 2nd semester. I can up to 14. This makes it interesting because I have a high runner, a moderate runner, on student who is embrassed to seen in public with his class (he realizes how low they are and is just realizing he's lowe than his grade level peers, but higher than a mjr. of his contained class). I can have up to 14 before the district will give me a floater.

How many do you have on your caseload? I currently have 31 and there is no limit.
Do you teach self-contained or resource? Resource
What grade levels? 4-6
How big is your school? 650
How many special ed teachers do you have? 2 The other SpEd teacher has 24.

I am glad you asked this question. Based on the present responses it seems that 31 is very high. We are feeling the pain - too much work, too tight a schedule and an admin that cuts no slack!

Does anyone else find the need to change student IEP minutes to meet the schedule at the beginning of each year? We must work around recesses lunches and specialists. SpEd competes with Gen Ed teachers for the students' time. When teachers are added or shifted, the specialist schedule changes. Each year we have to amend the IEP to fit the schoolyear's schedule. Doesn't seem right does it?
