teachersAlexander Middle and High School staff participated in a session to learn about the differences between students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) and those with a 504 plan. These sessions are crucial for fostering a deeper understanding of the unique needs and support systems for students with diverse learning requirements. The engagement of Spartan educators and their thought-provoking questions indicate a commitment to improving their knowledge and skills in supporting students with varying needs.

It's encouraging to see educators actively seeking knowledge to better serve the diverse needs of their students. This commitment to professional development is essential for fostering an inclusive and equitable education system.
