IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES
The theme for the Exceptional Student Services Department is "IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES". As we move forward with the overall motto of "TRANSFORMING LEARNING" we want all of our teachers, staff, and parents to Imagine all things that are Possible for our students. With the integration of technology and research based teaching strategies, Student with Disabilities will have access to the full continuum of services and access to some of the best teaching available. With this combination, we WILL see our students continue to progress in all areas.
Polk School District continues to work diligently on our State Systemic Improvement plan. While it is important to remember that all areas of Compliance and Performance are extremely important, the Improvement Plan will focus specifically on improving the Graduation Rate for Students with Disabilities. We will partner with parents and community stakeholders to develop strategies to address barriers to this goal and make every attempt to remove those barriers that may keep our students from graduating high school. In order to accomplish this we MUST have every stakeholder within our schools and within our community "IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES" .
