Mission Statement It is our goal as educators to provide all children direct access to and involvement in the general education curriculum. All students will be served in the least restrictive learning environment and with their typically developing peers. Students who are assessed on state-wide assessments (even with accommodations) must receive instruction in the academic content standards. Differentiated instruction will provide all students meaningful access to these challenging standards. We have one curriculum for ALL students and meeting the needs of all students is a shared responsibility of all teachers.

CHILD FIND — A SEARCH FOR ALL CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES
Every school district has the responsibility of seeking out and identifying children in need of special education services. Although school-age children are identified through each building’s intervention assistance team and referral process, parents of children not yet enrolled, who reside within the Batavia Local School District boundaries, may not be aware that services are available.What does a disability mean?For ages birth to 3: an established condition known to result in delay or a developmental delay.For ages 3-5: a documented deficit in one or more of the following developmental areas: communication, vision, hearing, motor skills, social/emotional/behavioral functioning, self-help skills and/or cognitive skills.For ages 5-21: identification of one or more of the following conditions: autism, hearing impairment including deafness, mental retardation, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, emotional disturbance, specific learning disabilities, speech or language impairment, traumatic brain injury and/or visual impairment including blindness.
