Department of Special Education Vision Statement

  • Because every student is a general education student first, our vision of the District 15 Special Education Department is to:

    • Address the specific needs of the student by providing intensive supports/instruction in reading, writing, and math that are rigorously research-based, instructional best practices, and innovative.
    • Build on the individual strengths and needs of each student taking into consideration the whole child including: emotional, social, behavioral, health, and academic needs.
    • Include all students in the general education environment, grade level expectations, and grade level curriculum whenever possible.
