educational goals that are significant, durable, and transferable.
The program will encompass classroom,
co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities specifically designed for
students whose needs are met through special education, vocational
education, academic education and community education.
Facilities and grounds which are conducive to
acquiring knowledge, attitudes and skills because students and staff are
physically and psychologically safe and focused on accomplishing
clearly-defined objectives and goals.
the Educational Needs:
Such needs consist of those learnings that each
person must have to function as a responsible, productive member of society
and to make it possible for the person to realize personal goals.
Students are those who are enrolled in a regular
program offered by the District or through the Williamson County Regional
Vocational System and the Williamson County Special Education District.
That are Significant, Durable and Transferable:

A durable educational goal is one in
which the knowledge, skills and/or attitudes that are acquired will be
