WELCOME TO RESOURCE / INCLUSION
As I start my 22nd year in the classroom, I want to welcome my new and returning students and their parents.
Resource is a pull-out service offered in the student’s disability area. Students placed in resource classes work on specific individualized educational goals and objectives developed by the admission, review and dismissal (ARD) committee.
Most often, students in resource classes cannot successfully participate in general education curriculum at grade level because of severe learning difficulties. These classes allow students to progress through the curriculum at their own level and pace.
Inclusion support is offered in designated academic areas and consists of a special education teacher/paraprofessional consulting with the general education teacher to assist in implementing individual educational plans and/or modifications within the general education classroom. Based on the needs of the student, this support may be indirect, through consultation with the general education teacher, or direct, with the teacher/paraprofessional working directly with the student in the classroom.
