MPE and the BSD Inclusion Model
Mount Pleasant Elementary utilizes the Brandywine School District Inclusion Model to meet the needs of each special education student.  The model involves:
  • Special education students have access to the general curriculum.
  • The needs of the students are identified, as well as how much support each student needs.
  • A schedule is built to meet the needs of the students.
  • Inclusion is a continuum of services, not just co-teaching.
  • Staff are trained on differentiated instruction.
  • Co-teaching = approximately 1/3 of students with IEP's in a regular class.
  • Support professionals (paraprofessionals or teachers) service approximately 15% of the students.
  • Collaboration time is developed for co-teaching and support facilitation.
Priority Expecations:
  • Principals have high expectations for teachers to have high expectations for students.
  • Principals have a working understanding of step-by-step process and schedule students based on needs.
  • Principals schedule common planning time for co-teachers.
  • Teachers/Specialists plan with other teachers.
  • Teachers/Specialists use student data to plan instruction and use differentiated instruction.
  • Teachers/Specialists have high expectations for students.
