There has been a rumor that APS will no longer offer social communications classes for students with special needs who need and benefit from these classes and that those students will be placed into cross category special ed. classes instead or all Soc. Comm. classes will be lumped together and not by level (ability). This would prevent students from being able to interact outside of a special ed. classroom or be sent out into classes without the support they need. Either case is not what is best for these students.  Please do not do this disservice to students who need the Social Comm. Classes. Consider meeting the students’ needs and providing a Fair and Appropriate Education (FAPE) to all students (ADA – American Disability Act).

New Mexico has been trying to improve graduation rates among all students and the Social Comm. Classes are critical for high school students who need this for their special needs & challenges to help them graduate high school. Please do not take away support for these students.

Students, parents, and the community want to see these students have the support they need to graduate and be successful.
