Philosophy of Education SAU #48


SAU #48 is committed to providing an education that fosters productive individuals and recognizes student differences.  Embodied in this commitment is the responsibility to provide an educational environment that offers opportunities for all students including those with disabilities or with particular strengths.  This environment should also stimulate students’ personal growth and encourage their contributions to the community.

Any programming designed to meet individual needs and recognize differences in learning style, rate and level of interest.  Programming should include flexible but comprehensive curricula within each discipline and in cross-discipline studies.  These studies should allow for both vertical acceleration and horizontal in-depth study and research.  Programming may require innovative scheduling, grouping that reflects varied ages, skills and interests, and multiple teaching strategies implemented by regular and special education staff, related service personnel, mentors and resource professionals.
