Intensive Behavior Supports Program - High School
Students who have significant behaviors, absences, have multiple office referrals or who are an adjudicated student may be served by these additional staff.

Should a student need to receive instruction and/or support from an outside program, Fort Dodge Senior High will provide transition services and support to students for a smooth return to the comprehensive high school setting.
