Need to find a preschool?
May 5, 2009
Issaquah School District officials are hoping you’ll turn to them.
District officials are asking parents of typically developing preschool-aged children to participate in a new program, which will integrate them with special needs children of the same age at Apollo, Discovery and Sunset elementary schools.
Each classroom will have up to 12 children with special needs and at least three typically developing students. There is no cost for the program for parents with typically developing students.
The program is built on research, which shows that combined classrooms are beneficial for both sets of students.
To participate, students must be at least 3 years old by June 1. Parents who are interested in the program can pick up applications and information at the main office of each of the three schools. Applications are due by May 13.
