There is a morning session and an afternoon session. Students receive specially designed instruction by a special education teacher. The program offers a continuum of appropriate, individualized services to enhance the development of children with special needs.

To be in the half-day PIP, students must either have an IEP or have passed a development screener to serve as a Peer Model.

The PIP classrooms provide special education services to students with a disability. Each classroom has some students placed in the room that display typically developing skills in order to serve as a peer model for the students with a disability.
