Exemplary Programs
Howard T. Ennis has a full-day, reverse inclusion preschool program. This program consists of typical students that serve as role models for our special needs population. Our elementary and middle school programs for students with disabilities have a small staff-to-student ratio. This smaller ratio allows staff to differentiate instruction to best accommodate the needs of our diverse population. The PACT program serves students ages 14-17 and consists of 2 major components: functional academics and pre-vocational opportunities. The PACT program was recognized as a 2010-2011 Super Stars In Education. The STEP program is a student-centered transition program designed to help students ages 18-21 make a more successful and seamless transition from school to adulthood. The students in the STEP program have multiple opportunities to gain work experiences, practice their independent living skills, and tour agencies that may possibly support them after graduation.
