Central Auckland Specialist School is currently closed due to Auckland being placed at COVID Alert Level 3 from 1200 on Wednesday,12 August 2020.
CASS is a place of learning for students who have an intellectual disability, many of whom also have physical, sensory or behavioural difficulties. CASS serves the suburbs of Central Auckland. The students of the school range from 5 to 21 years of age. All our students are funded under the Ministry of Education’s Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS) for Special Education.
We provide quality learning programmes tailored to the individual needs of our students. Our classes typically have 5-8 students each with high teacher aide and therapy support alongside skilled and experienced teachers.
We also run a Specialist Teacher Outreach Service, which supports ORS-funded students to be fully included in their mainstream schools.
