Why is APS working on policies related to Inclusion?
APS will review policies related to Inclusion.Through this work, we seek to support a diverse and inclusive school community, committed to academic excellence and integrity, by maximizing inclusive and effective instruction, intervention and support for all students, including those with special and dual needs. This includes ensuring that, “Inclusive education is both a vision and a practice…of welcoming, valuing, empowering, and supporting the diverse academic, social/emotional, language, and communication learning of all students in shared environments and experiences for attaining the desired goals of education. Inclusion is a belief that everyone belongs, regardless of need or perceived ability, and that all are valued and contributing members of the school community” (Villa and Thousand, 2016).
