It is the feeling of the Board of Education that all children are special children and that the Board's responsibility is to support an educational program that encompasses every effective learning avenue possible within fiscal resources.

Special programs may be applied to areas of concentration. These programs may include, but need not be limited to:

1. Federally funded programs.

2. Special state funded programs.

3. Summer school.

4. Recreation program.

5. Home teaching.

The Board recognizes that the regular elementary and/or secondary school program cannot meet the needs of every resident child. The Board desires to establish such schools and programs as will enable every child to receive an education appropriate to his/her needs, including, but not limited to, programs for children with exceptional needs, continuation schools, vocational/technical schools, gifted and talented children programs, homebound instruction, and, if the need warrants, alternative schools. It is expected that the Superintendent will investigate and evaluate the needs of the children resident in this district, and, on approval of the Board, establish and maintain any and all such program adaptations and alternative programs.
