It is the mission of the Kenowa Hills Public Schools Special Education Department to provide excellence and equity in education. Our goal is for all students to master essential skills and become successful, productive citizens into adulthood.
Kenowa Hills Public Schools supports students who are eligible under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act through a cooperation of programs which include general education, resource rooms, supplemental aides and services, Early Childhood Special Education programs, classrooms for students with cognitive impairment, and classrooms for students that are impacted to a more significant degree by their disability and require more intensive programming. All programs and services for any student that requires specialized instruction as it relates to IDEA are determined through each student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). Kenowa Hills Public Schools utilizes programs and services both inside of our school district as well as through a cooperative agreement with surrounding districts.
The Kenowa Hills Personal Mastery way of teaching thrives in our special education environments, in fact, is all that teachers in special education have ever known – every child has a personalized learning plan that’s transparent to them and to their parents, and everyone is aware of expectations for behavior and growth. Having the opportunity to grow that level of focus and personalization throughout the school and build a stronger, more collaborative community because of it, has been a positive experience for everyone.

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
