Special Education at ACLC
"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
Parents of learners with disabilities in the Alameda community often seek placement at ACLC. This often occurs from word-of-mouth recommendations by other parents of learners with disabilities because our small school environment and innovative educational model nurtures their children as full members of the ACLC community.
Below are the core tenets of our approach to Special Education:
- All learners at ACLC with disabilities will be fully included in all aspects of the general education curriculum.
- Services that remediate academic challenges will be incorporated into the general education program, including learners without disabilities.
- All learners at ACLC with and without disabilities are expected to participate in leadership roles in the community.
- Referrals for assessment for special education services will be generated by facilitators, Student Study Teams and parents. Assessments will be conducted within the legal timeframe. ACLC will collaborate with El Dorado County Charter School SELPA School Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Vision and Mobility Specialists, Adaptive Physical Education Teachers and Special Day Class teachers to provide appropriate educational services to our learners.
- ACLC will use 21st-century educational technology, thus providing more access to learning opportunities for learners with disabilities: i.e. online learning, computer-assisted learning, independent learning programs, peer tutoring, and project based learning.
