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.
Students are placed in multi-age classrooms according to their developmental needs and academic skills. Caldwell Elementary values the need for individual attention to ensure that students receive the accommodations they require. Therefore, class size rarely exceeds eight students with a teacher and teacher’s assistant/s supporting the classroom. Additional related service providers are also available for group and individual services such as; Speech, Occupational Therapy, Music and Art.
