The Beliefs that Drive our Work

  • Special education is not a place. It is the most intensive intervention along the continuum of service defined by individual need, services, and placement.
  • Strong leadership at every level is the foundation of a collaborative and inclusive environment that supports ALL students.
  • All students are general education students first. Every student can learn, demonstrate growth, and must have access to high quality, evidence-based instruction that maximizes their potential in the least restrictive environment.
  • Educators are professionals, content experts, and the key to student success. They should be supported instructionally and professionally.
  • All students can achieve postsecondary success.
