Philosphy Of EducationI believe that each child should be treated as an individual who has unique characteristics and skills. It is my desire to provide treatment to each child for the purpose of improving their physical capabilities to allow them to perform with the most success within the school environment and to equally support my colleagues’ goals as well as mine to allow the child to grow emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially as a whole.Philosophy of Grading
Students at VVS receive marking period grades according to grade level, instructional level and/or teacher grading policy. Students receiving physical therapy services do not receive a grade. Physical therapy is a supportive service that assists the student with a disability to benefit from their education. Physical therapy services addresses the student's annual goals that are developed from a team approach using evaluation data (including present level of performance), clinical observations and in consideration of the educational requirements of the student's academic program. During each quarter of the academic school year, the student who receives services is assessed on their annual goals and a written narrative is provided on their progress.
