Philosophy

The Pelham School District has inclusive philosophies for all children with disabilities which directly correspond to the belief that all students must have the opportunity to access the general curriculum, and to progress within that curriculum and participate as fully as possible in the wide range of activities provided within our school systems. The preferred setting for all students with disabilities is one in which students can interact and be educated with their non-disabled peers. All possible educational supports are explored as teams strive to serve each child in the least restrictive educational setting. The District believes it is the responsibility of the school to put in place whatever special programming, supports or services are needed for each student to meet with success.
