Special Needs Program at Tarpum Bay Primary School

Initiative: 
Partners in Education - PIE
Rationale: 

The majority of special education is only provided within special schools, taking children from a regular school environment. Within a regular school system, special students do not receive the special attention they need, affecting their behaviour and grades. 

Purpose: 

To assist in providing proper educational experiences for students with special learning needs without taking them out of a normal school setting.

Approach: 

Locate a school to launch a pilot program. Assist in funding a special needs teacher. Determine the practicality of the program and ultimately launch at all primary schools on Eleuthera once the class is deemed feasible.

A Shared Vision

The Shared Vision for South Eleuthera, which was first commissioned by Friends of Lighthouse Point to develop a sustainable plan for Lighthouse Point and other special heritage and conservation sites on Eleuthera, inspired the formation of One Eleuthera.
