“Inclusion is an attitude and a value system that promotes the basic right of all students to receive appropriate and quality educational programming and services in the company of their peers”(Guetzole). Inclusive schools embrace the notions that all children belong, and that all children will learn if their educational needs are met. Notably absent from this definition is any mention of children with disabilities or special education. Inclusion is not a special education issue. It is about developing supportive schools and fostering high achievement for all staff and all students.
This year as we move forward with our inclusion philosophy, we are looking at ways to ensure that everyone in our school community has a clear understanding of what Inclusion is truly all about. Please download our Inclusion Pamphlet and read the highlights regarding Roncalli and our Focus on Inclusion. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school for more information.
