The Martin Luther King Jr. Charter School of Excellence is committed to providing students with disabilities access to the curriculum and general education programs. With in-district resources and necessary consultative services, we are able to provide the instruction necessary to help students with disabilities close the gap between their skill abilities and their grade level expectations.
Special education support and services should not be viewed as a separate model, but instead as a part of the continuum of supports, services and interventions created to ensure that the general education environment is responsive to the diverse learning needs of all students. Working together, general education staff and special education staff can ensure equal opportunity, full participation and increased outcomes for all learners, including students with disabilities.
