What Are We Doing?

Posted on Updated on

downloadLABBB has a Mission: Promoting academic, social, and career independence.

The purpose of having a mission statement is to keep the Team aligned with What we are doing with each and every student. A mission statement should drive our actions each day. What is the next goal, objective, or benchmark we need to work on to move closer to our mission for this student?

To open the IEP meeting, the chairperson could begin by stating, “Our mission in LABBB is to promote academic, social, and career independence for Michael. I want the Team to keep this in mind as we are creating his goals and objectives. We may not all agree on what we need to do to move Michael closer to independence, but all Team members should present goals, objectives and benchmarks that reflect our mission.”

    Thank you for making it clear, Patric, that the team must put the needs of the child first, secondary to the needs of the teacher, the school program. IDEA’s purpose is clear that an independent adult should be the finished product after special education services. This too could be read as the mission statement of the Team: “The stated purpose of IDEA is to ensure that all students with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living” Nuff said.
