“The Belleville Public Schools Local Building and Improvement Project for Special Education-Least Restrictive Environment is designed to promote, provide and support the practice of inclusive education. The Belleville School District has adopted a proactive stance for including students with disabilities in general education. We are committed to developing and expanding our continuum of options for students to participate in general education. The district is building its capacity by reshaping and rethinking its mindset of LRE, specifically inclusive practices. We have gone beyond our traditional scope by changing the attitude of administration, staff, parents and students. To accomplish this goal, it is necessary that the district permanently embraces the LRE concept and provides accommodations and modifications necessary to ensure that all students achieve their educational goals.”
