Focus on “Success for All” students
In 2012-13, Gulf Islands received a “Special Education Innovation Grant” to explore alternate ways of ensuring all students learn at high levels. Part of the motivation was to respond to the needs of every learner in a timely manner, regardless of whether that student was designated as one with disabilities. The unique context within this district – one of innovation, support for personalized learning, a climate of inclusion, and caring learning places, laid the foundation for recent initiatives including the class and district reviews, the addition of support teachers, and the Response to Instruction & Intervention training. Ultimately all of this work underlies our commitment to success for all students.
