About Caldwell Elementary School EDBD Program

Caldwell Elementary Program is a substantially separate school that educates children in grades K-6. Students are referred from member and nonmember districts due to students being unable to make effective progress in their current school setting or for assessment purposes. Referred students may present with significant social, emotional and learning disabilities and behavioral issues. Students may have dual diagnosis’s of ADD/ADHD, PTSD, PDD, ODD. The goal of this full day program is to assist children in developing healthy relationships, learn to self regulate their emotions, enhance their communication skills and meet their academic potential. The program runs a typical school calendar year with the option of an extended school year. We work to educate students to possess the social skills required for success in school and in the community. We work to create a learning environment where students can feel comfortable and confident so they can be the best version of themselves and return to a least restrictive environment.

The goal of the program is to provide each student with the behavioral and academic skills required to return to less restrictive educational settings.

Student Ratio
