We systematically mainstream our students with general education students by placing students with disabilities or special learning needs in regular classrooms with their non-disabled peers to the greatest extent possible, with appropriate support and accommodations as needed to help them access and participate in the general education curriculum.
Mainstreaming within our ESN Program
Mainstreaming our ESN students with general education students involves placing students with disabilities or special learning needs in regular classrooms or educational programs with their non-disabled peers to the greatest extent possible. This means that special education students have the opportunity to learn alongside their non-disabled peers and to participate in the same academic and extracurricular activities.
In a mainstream setting, special education students are additional support and accommodations to help them access and participate in the general education curriculum to the best of their capability. This may include things like modifications to the curriculum or assessments, assistive technology, one-on-one or small group instruction, and other supports as needed.
The goal of mainstreaming is to help special education students to be as included and integrated as possible in their educational and community experiences.
