Mrs. Fichtel's PictureThe Sherman School Special Education Department is committed to high standards of educational outcomes for students with disabilities through the provision of specialized instruction, related services, and accommodations. We believe that programs are most effective when general education and special education do not function as separate systems, but are united. Our instructional efforts are focused on meeting mandated expectations to educate students in their home schools, in least restrictive environments, and in inclusive classrooms. Our goal is to maximize access for students identified as having disabilities to the general education curriculum and to non-disabled peers. We recognize the need for a continuum of placement options to meet the unique and individual needs of students. A culture of high expectations, quality, and accountability is promoted. As we attempt to meet the needs of each student, we realize that the most successful outcomes will be the result of on-going collaboration among student, family, and staff.
