  • Integrate a range of adapted and assistive technologies throughout all aspects of the school day
  • Incorporate multiple communication modalities
  • Promote family and community engagement through activities and tools, such as Class DoJo.
  • Support individual educational programs with specialized consultants such as Teachers of the Visually Impaired, Teachers of the Deaf, and Orientation and Mobility Specialists
  • Supplement the special education program curriculum by bringing in consultants such as music teachers to provide enrichment
  • Hold monthly interdisciplinary and comprehensive quarterly team meetings to review each student’s program, equipment, and progress and plan adjustments as appropriate

Class DoJo

We are happy to announce that beginning the 2023-2024 school year, we began using Class DoJo to connect parents and guardians to their student’s teacher. Using Class DoJo allows you to message teachers directly, see photos and student work, and keep updated on what is happening in your student’s classroom.

“Community-based activities and field trips support students in learning how to be active members of their community and provide opportunities to practice important skills being worked on in the classroom. Additionally, they may offer opportunities for students to engage with peers, which research shows is advantageous across curriculum areas and grade bands. Peer interactions support building metacognitive awareness and social skills, as well as offering students opportunities to actively participate in learning experiences.”
