GOALS (Growth/Opportunity/Attitude/Learning/Success) Learning Center is a unique instructional placement for students with specific educational needs in grades six through twelve in the Round Rock Independent School District. This educational program serves students in special education whose placement has been determined by an Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) Committee.
The GOALS Learning Center (GLC) is designed for special education students with a primary disability of Emotional Disturbance. The students must also demonstrate a need for a more structured environment than is available on the home campus. GLC also provides a Service Learning class that integrates community service with classroom instruction. While the program at GOALS is a highly restrictive educational placement, the ultimate goal for each student is to successfully transition back to a general education campus.
