  1. Identify students with special needs, create maximum learning opportunities and foster high expectations

  2. Create a collaborative relationship between parents, teachers, students, administration, and support staff

  3. Promote individualized instructional techniques and supports for students

  4. Access general education curriculum through inclusion

  5. Utilize technology as an instructional tool for students and teachers
