Inclusion/Special Education

  • Inclusion/Special Education

    Webster follows the PUSD inclusion model in all of our classes.  Our students with learning, developmental or other disabilities learn side-by-side with other students in general education classes.  

    Grades K-5 follow a modified inclusion model, where each class has up to five students with identified special needs, a regular education teacher, and a special education paraprofessional. An on-site Education Specialist collaborates with general education teachers and oversees implementation of each child's Individual Education Plan (IEP). 

    Special Day Classes (SDC) are available for K-2nd and 3rd-5th grade students at Webster with severe disabilities.

    For Pre-K special needs students, ages 3 and 4, two options are available.  One is a Sensory Motor Special Day Class.  The other class, opening in September 2010, is a blended Inclusion Pre-K which will consist of a mixture of students with disabilities and those in general education.

    If you are the parent of a special needs child, you’ll find a wealth of information, training and opportunities to network with other families of kids with special needs through The Community Advisory Committee, (CAC).  This parent-run group is established by the state to give parents a voice in Special Education implementation. This vibrant group of parents and professionals gathers monthly to share and learn about how special education is making a difference in the educational lives of its students!
