Exemplary Programs
The John G. Leach School and the Colonial Early Education Program (CEEP) staff and administration work collaboratively with parents, community, state, and district groups to empower students to reach their fullest potential as independent, productive citizens. Our programs provide focused and motivating learning environments for all students. All staff engage in professional development to provide state-of-the-art programming. Our goal is to employ "best practice" methods, including the use of technology, individualized programming, functional mobility, and meaningful peer interaction opportunities. Our school/parent collaboration has been an integral part of our program's success. These efforts also led to our school being recognized as the nation's first M.O.V.E. (Mobility Opportunities via Education) Model Site. The CEEP is comprised of preschool-aged children with and without identified disabilities and is housed at John G. Leach School.
