Re: “Specialists for special education

I found this article a total propaganda piece. This is clearly an attempt by the RCSD to get ahead of all of the bad publicity this is going to cause. Prediction: this is going to be a total train wreck for every student affected. Not only do the current ICOT classrooms help support learning for ALL students, but they help control behaviors which lead to students being sent to an in school suspension room or suspended from school (which we don't do no matter how severe the offense). Both general education and special education students benefit from an ICOT classroom in many, many ways. Many elementary students with special needs require support throughout he whole school day in order to be successful. With the move away from ICOT where (in a good classroom) the teachers work collaboratively to make all student feel successful and make gains in the classroom, student with special needs will now have less support, which can only lead to less success. Parents are also going to be railroaded in this process, as every child's IEP will now need to be changed to reflect this REDUCTION IN SUPPORT.
Oh, and for the record, at our building we were told by our CASE worker that this was "solely a financial decision by the district" and a "long term money solution for our Special Education Department". So.... there's the truth, what we are being told, and what the RCSD is telling the public. Which one of those fits this article?
