    Placement in Resource Classroom vs. Regular Education Classroom

    Students in our extended resource program will participate in regular education to fullest extent possible. The Individuals with Disability Act  (IDEA) requires that all children with disabilities must be educated in the least restrictive environment (LRE) that is appropriate for them. The student’s Individual Education Program (IEP) team is responsible for determining the most appropriate educational placement in the least restrictive environment based on a student’s unique educational needs. 

    When a student is not able to participate in the regular classroom, the student is provided with the same curriculum, standards, and expectations offered in the regular classroom. Any accommodations and/or modifications are clearly stated in the student’s IEP.  As teachers, we will strive to provide each student with a path to success tailored to his or her strengths and needs. The goal is always a successful placement, transition, and participation in the regular classroom.
