Needham Special Education Vision


  Needham Special Education Vision

  • We are united in a common commitment to ensuring success, engagement, and a sense of belonging for each student.

  • Students have access to a general education curriculum with high expectations and standards to create a better future for themselves and others, in alignment with district curriculum frameworks and the Portrait of a Needham Graduate.

  • Our classrooms and school buildings are safe, inclusive and welcoming communities, where we support student achievement academically, socially/emotionally and behaviorally, and help students understand their learning profiles.

  • Special education processes are collaborative, culturally responsive, and equitable with a focus on the individual strengths and needs of the student.

  • We value our partnership and effective communication with students, families, staff, and the community.

  •  All staff are valued as professionals, for their knowledge, experience, and competence, and best practices are promoted through comprehensive professional learning.

  • A comprehensive continuum of instructional and related services, supports and resources are available to schools, staff, students and families to meet the assessed needs of students and we hold ourselves accountable for data-driven results.

  • Services are coordinated with community resources to support students and their families.
