Horizon Academy
Horizon Academy is a member of the Georgia Network for Educational and Therapeutic Support (GNETS). GNETS programs support the local education agency’s continuum of services by providing comprehensive special education and therapeutic support. The individualized education placement (IEP) team may consider in-class services by a GNETS program for a child with an emotional and behavioral disorder based upon documentation of the severity of the duration, frequency and intensity of one or more of the characteristics of the disability category of emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD).
