On the evening of January 23rd, many parents and teacher members of the Malverne SEPTA came out for a special presentation titled “Special Ed. & the Core”. Meredyth Martini, Director of Special Education and Rachel Gross, Special Education Teacher, led a rich discussion on how our special education students are working on achieving success within the Common Core. “Our teachers have always been masters at looking at an IEP goal and figuring out a systematic way of making sure that their student reaches that goal”, says Mrs. Martini. “Our Special education teachers are now taking that approach and applying it to Common Core.”  Parents went home with a packet of resources, helpful tips, and a new way of looking at common core in the world of special education.
