PHILOSOPHY FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION
The Delano Public School community is dedicated to meeting the educational needs and challenging the abilities of each individual. Through the mutual teaching – learning process, all students can master essential basic skills for his/her ability level in appropriate programs of study and demonstrate increased responsibility in personal decisions and social interaction in preparation for community living.
The focus of Delano Special Education Program is on the learner, the student. His or her educational development toward the school’s goals is the central concern of the district.
The goal of special education shall be as follows:
“To ensure that all students with differing abilities get proper services as determined by a partnership of parents, regular education teachers and special educators to meet his/her needs in the most appropriate setting.”
