Welcome to Visions Emerson
The VISIONS EMERSON PROGRAM educates students with multiple disabilities in grades seven through twelve. Students work in a supportive yet challenging environment designed to maximize educational opportunities within a traditional high school setting while providing extra supports and services.
The program offers inclusion/mainstreaming opportunities based upon each student's abilities, interests, and grade level. Related services--- physical therapy, speech, nursing, occupational therapy and counseling are available. Transition services are an integral part of the program and include Community Based Instruction, Life Skills, Career Ed classes, Guidance Counselor, Job Coach and Internships.
VISIONS utilizes a number of strategies and assistive technologies to bring high-interest learning and activities to its students. VISIONS staff members believe that in this safe environment, the greater the expectations, the greater the achievements!
A Message from the Principal
It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome students, staff and families to the start of the 2019-2020 school year. The start of a new school year is always a time to envision the many opportunities our students will experience in order to enhance their social, emotional and academic growth. These opportunities may include mainstreaming, securing an internship, or utilizing updated technology to help meet academic goals. The main focus is to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate life after graduation. For that reason, my staff members work closely with students, families and local districts to assure that transition goals are implemented and achieved. It is evident, form success stories I have witnessed, that exceptional work is being done in BCSS programs. I plan to support that work with my experience as we look forward to continued growth.
Thank you for allowing me to work with your children. I look forward to meeting and collaborating with you throughout the school year.
