Inclusive Practices

  • We have always prioritized inclusive practices in District 109, as data consistently shows that all students thrive when they have as much access to the general education setting as appropriate and possible given their individual needs.

    Inclusive practices are a priority for our entire team. We remain dedicated to fostering an inclusive school community where expectations and standards are consistently high for all students, and where teachers and staff are supported to ensure that all students can succeed.
