Life Skills




  • TSS

     Todd Lancaster, Classroom Teacher

    The TSS Program is a specially designed program to meet the individual needs of students with disabilities.  The primary focus of this program is behavior, education, and skills training in order to foster adaptive behavior.  This is only accomplished through the collaborative efforts of the participating student's home district, parents, TSS teacher and paraprofessionals, and Director of Special Education.  It should also be emphasized that student success ultimately is achieved by each student choosing of their own accord to modify and adapt behavior.  The TSS Program uses a positive reinforcement system to promote appropriate behavior in the classroom and school community.  Opportunities for mainstreaming are considered on an individual basis as the student progresses. This process integrates students into the least restrictive environment according to each student's individual needs.
