Kids Learning Together (KLT)
The KLT program is a fee-based reverse mainstream program in an environment where the program is designed for special education students but includes typically developing peers as role models. Three and four-year-old children of district employees are eligible for enrollment. Children enrolled in the KLT program must not have a diagnosed disability, including a speech disability. This requirement is based on the need for the children enrolled in the KLT program to be age-appropriate role models for the children in the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) classroom. The goal is to provide communication and social models for children in our PPCD, self contained classrooms while also providing a developmentally appropriate preschool education for our KLT students. The projected ratio is 6:6 (child with special needs: typically developing child). Three adults are assigned to the classroom. Staff includes a certified teacher and two classroom assistants.
Who: Typically developing three or four year old children of district employees (must turn three or four on or before September 1st of the current school year)
When: All 187 instructional, staff development, and teacher work days days from mid August through May (and any other days needed for inclement weather days).
Hours are 7:30 a.m. – 5:15 p.m.
Cost: $350 month (August – May) This will be through payroll deduction for the ten months.
