This Week At Ward

May 31, 2013   



Dear Incoming Gr. 3 Parents, 

Next year, one of our third grade classes will be a co-taught model.  This class will be staffed with two teachers who are certified in both elementary education and special education as well as a full time graduate student intern or aide.   Included in the class will be a number of students who currently receive services outside of the classroom in additional to the usual range of students that create a balanced class.  The increased staffing will allow students to receive services within the classroom to address the goals of their Educational Plans.  Many Newton schools are adopting this model for selected grade levels depending on students' needs.  I want to emphasize that both third grades will cover the same curriculum and include students with a variety of strengths and challenges.  On Thursday, June 6, I will be joined by teachers, parents, and the principal of Mason-Rice School to share with you their experience with this model.  I hope you can join us at 8:30 in the Dolphin Cafe.
