Special Education Services
At the Thomas J. Kenny School, our model is founded in the belief that all people benefit from a supportive and inclusive environment that is strengthened by its diversity. As students, teachers, parents and partners, we work together to provide all students with appropriate accommodations and necessary services to gain the knowledge and skills needed to critically and creatively participate as valued members of our school community.
At the Kenny School, we offer special education services for students with disabilities in various ways. The first is through an inclusion where a special education teacher and a paraprofessional work together in a general education classroom. The second, is in a substantially separate classroom where students work in a small-group setting for the majority of the day. The third is a combination of the two, where students receive inclusion opportunities and small-group opportunities based on their specific needs.
