Main Goal

The main goal of the special education programs here at Rogers Middle School is to work with all students of all abilities individually. We recognize that every requires individual pathways to their desired college and career, and life after high school. We provide resources, curriculum support, and professional learning experiences. It is our teacher's job to provide our students with independent skills in understanding and solving problems, communicating, collaborating, ethics, self-management, and being an adaptable and productive citizen. We look closely at encouraging and motivating students while promoting choice and ownership in outcomes.
