Field Work 5 responded that the school aligns with the regulations of all P10X schools (Appendix A). They ensure that the educators are provided with sufficient training to ensure they can effectively deal with special needs learners. In addition, the institution hires paraprofessionals who have a 1:1 ratio with the special needs students. The second response involved their compliance to the regulations of the New York City Board of Education (Appendix A). This regulation is the Transportation Policy under act A-801 Section 2 “Special Education Pupil Transportation Policies, Procedures and Eligibility Requirements” (Fryer, 2013).

The third question focused on improvements that can be made (Appendix A). She stated that more resources are needed to cater for more special needs students. She also stated that more schools should incorporate similar projects so that all students receive a quality education from an early age. Ms. Karenlin’s response to her first question was that the institution focuses on the use of physical infrastructure and learning resources in a manner which accommodates all the students (Appendix A). She further stated that the school promoted equality to the toddlers so that once they grow, they would have such values.

Ms. Karenlin said that qualified teachers and paraprofessionals were hired to assist these young learners. The school also complied with Act A-801 from the New York City Board of Education (Fryer, 2013).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
