As of fall 2017, we are proud to reintroduce our ESS (Exceptional Student Services) staff as the new Inclusion Department. We hope that this new term better reflects our shared philosophy that students have better outcomes when they are included in the community with their peers. Research shows that there is added benefit to the community when we are exposed to the different strengths and challenges of others. Different perspectives push thinking further and enrich the community. As a department, we work with teachers and students to be full members of the general education classroom whenever possible. Through this philosophy, we consider what students need in the immediate-and long-term.
