Cloverleaf has been providing for students eligible for special education within the general education classroom through co-teaching since the 2005-06 school year.
During the 2015-16 school year, a committee of teachers and administrators, through the support of State Support Team 8 (SST8), embarked on an evolutionary examination of current and best practices in serving ALL Cloverleaf students in accessing and progressing in the general education curriculum. Cloverleaf Local Schools is committed to providing a continuum of supports and services to ALL students to support them academically and behaviorally in preparation for lifelong learning.
As a special education department, we believe:
- All students can learn.
- Student success is dependent on collaboration between parents and educators.
- When high expectations are set, our students will meet them.
- Students with disabilities will be educated in their least restrictive environment along a continuum of services.
- Students with disabilities require intervention, specially designed instruction, and core content instruction in order to demonstrate growth and to close the achievement gap.
