  • Our Philosophy

    To the maximum extent possible, students with disabilities should be served with their same-age peers in their home schools.

    In order to effectively implement our philosophy, we believe:

    • Parents are valuable team members in the development of educational plans for their children. 
    • Students with disabilities should be offered a continuum of services.
    • Each school should have staff that works as a team to meet the unique needs of each student with a disability.
    • Staff development is crucial to meeting student needs and staying current with the latest information.
    • Technology should be incorporated into the curriculum to maximize opportunities for students with disabilities to reach high standards.
