School Mainstreaming Contest Winners, 1991


The Holy Name of Jesus School, a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade parochial elementary school, houses the Scranton Diocese Special Ecducation Program. An Individualized Instruction Classroom (IIC) provides an appropriate setting for a variety of educational opportunities for exceptional children.

The curriculum offers academic subjects, social learning, physical development, pre-vocational education and pre-educational skills in basic computer technology. Each child proceeds at his/her own rate according to their IEPs. Various opportunities exist for mainstreamed activities with the students of Holy Name School.

In practice, the students enrolled in the Individual Instruction Program function in most of the regular classes with reasonable accommodation. All students share activities in gym, music, religion. Many of the exceptional children are integrated into the regular, math and other academic areas. Church, cafeteria, religious programs, playground, assemblies and general settings provide excellent opportunities for the children with disabilities to participate with their peers and for the other students to learn about understanding and friendship in return.

Admission is currently open to qualified children ages 5 through 1 3 regardless of ethnic, racial, religious or socioeconomic background. Children who apply are screened to determine the appropriate placement.
