General Curriculum is the established plan of instruction for all students in a Local Education Agency (LEA). It can be based on the LEA”S or state’s standards.
Access to the general curriculum means that education planning for students with disabilities has as its foundation the curriculum being taught within the district and that curriculum be presented at a level and in a manner in which students with disabilities can acquire the content.
The district needs to provide release time for secondary collaboration between the middle school and high school teachers for curricular development and preparation. This support should also be provided at the elementary and middle school level.
