Consortium Vision for Special Education

The focus of special education staff in Consortium schools is on ensuring that students are receiving the support they need in order to be successful in school. Our Role as special educators is to help students build the skills they need to navigate the world, not to enforce arbitrary standards of behavior. Special Education teachers have the experience and education that should lead curriculum planning in order to ensure the success of all learners. 

At Beacon, equity is at the center of what we do to ensure all students with IEPs receive access to all programs available to all students in preparation for college and career readiness.

"Supporting students with IEPs can only happen successfully with a partnership between parents, staff and students. Parents are the experts on who their children are and what their children need."
