Special Education Mission Statement
SAU #34 has adopted an inclusive philosophy for all students with disabilities corresponding to the belief that all students can and will learn, especially if those around them believe that to be true. We believe that all students will be educated to the maximum extent appropriate for each student and each classroom in an effort to provide them with the skills necessary to enjoy full membership in the school community and the community at large.
At the heart of the district's mission is the belief that its primary purpose is to provide all students with opportunities to develop competency, reasoning and problem solving skills in the core curriculum areas of English, Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Technology, Foreign Language, Physical Education and the Arts. Curricula will be designed to integrate academic learning with practical and technical knowledge, while developing students' skills and interests.
