INCLUSION PRESCHOOL

CUSD provides preschool services to students with significant disabilities and research shows these children perform best when educated together with non-disabled children.  Therefore, each year we search for non-disabled children from 3-4 years old to serve as age-appropriate role models for our children with disabilities.  If accepted into this preschool class, your child will have the opportunity to meet and interact with a diverse group of children.
