Authentic Learning Experiences
In order to help each student meet the priority goals and objectives of his/her current Individualized Educational Program, we will be providing instruction in out-of-school sites as well as in the classroom during the coming school year according to student readiness. This type of instruction is called “Community-Based Programming.” It provides students with disabilities the opportunity to acquire functional skills and to interact with non-disabled individuals. Exposure to shopping centers, restaurants, banks, neighborhood grocery stores, etc., will provide your son/daughter with the opportunity to learn to function more independently in the world.
We will be communicating with you periodically by phone or letter throughout the school year to inform you about some of the various community activities in which you/your student will participate. At times, you may choose to send a small amount of money to cover the cost of a special activity, such as lunch at a fast-food restaurant or shopping.
All out-of-school activities will be under our direction. Supervision will be provided by educators and/or other authorized, responsible adults. Various means of transportation will be used: walking, public buses, school buses, etc. in all kinds of weather. Please watch the weather reports and dress accordingly.
Please note that school staff are not allowed to use personally owned automobiles to transport students.

If a Work Related Injury Occurs - Very Important!

In the event of a life or limb-threatening emergency, care will be sought at the nearest hospital or emergency facility. We will make every effort to contact you when there is an injury; however, if we are unable to reach you and initial first aide does not appear sufficient, we will respond with immediate, appropriate care by one of the following: transporting to one of these locations (listed below) and/or calling 911 for immediate emergency response.
