Podcast to Elect Jason Keck for School Board – Taking Care of Our Students with Special Needs and Their Curriculum

The Park Hill School District does well preparing its general education students for college, entering a trade school or joining the workforce. Students who qualify for individualized education plans need a uniform, research based curriculum which is implemented in all Park Hill schools. Currently, special education teachers are left to create or individually purchase their own educational programs for each student that is not guided by a district standard or monitored by administration. Special education teachers need to have district support in providing these programs or at the very least access to all tier one district purchased curriculum. Without a set special education curriculum, students may not receive the quality instruction that should be expected within the district. Evidence of students with special needs falling through the cracks is reflected in a 77% graduation rate compared to 93% of general education students within the Park Hill School District.
