The Fridley school district provides support to preschoolers and students through a full range of special service programs. Students with special needs may be provided services in area preschools, in the regular classroom, through individualized instruction in a resource room, in special classes, in special day schools, or in residential schools, homes or hospitals.
A team of special and regular education personnel works with parents to determine the type of educational which best meets the learner's individual needs. An individualized educational plan is developed cooperatively between parents and school staff.
The development of lifelong learners who reach their full potential, care for others, are adaptable and are prepared to thrive in a diverse, global and changing society.
- All learners have the right to a quality education.
- All learners have the ability to learn and attain self-fulfillment.
- All learners need the strategies and tools necessary to strive toward becoming responsible, independent and productive members of society.
