“Building Wide Accommodation Plans” will assist regular education teachers in providing intervention practices that are helpful to students, are reasonable to implement and are an accepted classroom practice. Creating a set of accommodations or supports to be used in all classrooms throughout the building by staff will accommodate the needs of diverse learners and enhance the participation and learning of students. The “Building Wide Accommodation Plans” are living documents that will be revised and improved on an annual basis.
Each school’s specific “Building Wide Accommodation Plan” will assist the Principal in ensuring that all efforts have been made to meet students’ needs in regular education. It is designed to assist the regular classroom teacher in analyzing and accommodating diverse learning styles of all children in general education and in providing appropriate services and support within the general education classroom.
The school plans in this booklet reflect the unique needs of each building but can be used as a resource since all plans are included. This final document will be shared with each Building Principal and Intervention & Referral Services Team. It includes curriculum accommodations for elementary, middle, and high school and includes suggestions for accommodating concerns around academic progress and social and behavioral issues. This project is a result of Special Services’ training by the New Jersey Office of Special Education in an effort to improve the functioning of the Irvington I&RS Teams in assisting students in general education.
