The elementary classes use a curriculum aligned to State Standards (Unique Learning Systems) as well as supplemental curriculum as needed. Classes also use Rethink Ed to support learning and behavior and facilitate data collection. Students participate in the California Alternate Assessment. Programs also provide opportunities for students to participate in meaningful experiences with their non-disabled peers.
