The mission of the Grundy County Special Education Cooperative is to prepare students with disabilities to be functional members of society by providing specialized programs, services and personnel in a learning environment that maximizes individual potential.
We believe that:
Education must prepare students to be functional members of society
A child’s school experience must build the foundation for lifelong learning
Parents/families, teachers, support staff and administrators must work cooperatively and collaboratively to promote learning
All children are unique and must be educated in a learning environment that maximizes their individual potential
A students self esteem is critical to optimal learning
Social, emotional and physical development are equally as important as academic development
All children have strengths
Education must be challenging, enjoyable, relevant, interactive and productive.
