Laney High School 2016 - 2017
Severe / Profound Intellectual Disabilities
Instructor: Mr. Bigelow, M.P.A.
It is a pleasure to welcome you to Lucy Laney High School and to my classroom. I look forward to working with you and your child and to a productive and successful school year.
We are adopting the 3 R’s of education: Rigor, Relevance and Relationships. I believe that Relationships are the most important, as they allow a student to connect previous knowledge with new knowledge and understand their connection.
Student instruction is broken down into 5 areas:
Functional Curriculum and Academics
Independent Living Skills
Pre- Vocational Activities
Recreation / Leisure
Students will also participate in Adaptive P.E. and Music.
Grades are determined based on mastery of IEP goals and objectives, attendance, and participation in classroom activities / exercises.
Journals will be sent home on a daily basis that document the days activities, events, issues and concerns. Parents are encouraged to review and respond if necessary.
