Academic Success for All: Moving Inclusively

Inclusion Plan Approval

  • A plan to move Special Education and English Language Learners (ELL) back to their attendance zones schools was approved by the Board of Education at its October meeting.  Before the vote, Board President Kenneth Rivera thanked those who served on several committees to create the plans. Four stakeholder committees were formed in May 2014 and met more than 30 times collectively over the summer to discuss plans to move the students back to their home schools. The committees included Elementary Special Education, Secondary Special Education, Elementary ELL and Secondary ELL.

    The committees defined more than 100 recommendations to make the transition successful in five general areas: student transition, staffing, training for all stakeholder groups, resource allocation and ongoing communication.

    Key recommendations from the committees included:

    • Elementary school ELL students transition to their attendance zone school in school year 2015-2016.
    •  Middle school ELL students transition to their attendance zone school in school year 2015-2016.
    • Students attending Richardson Park Learning Center transition to their attendance zone school in school year 2015-2016.
    • Students attending the Central School transition to their attendance zone school in school year 2015 to 2016.
