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 particular strengths.  This environment should also stimulate students' personal growth and encourage their contributions to the community.

Programming should be designed to meet individual needs and recognize differences in learning style, rate, and level of interest. It should include flexible but comprehensive curricula within each discipline and cross-discipline studies. These studies should allow for 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.
