The North Salem Central School District has been approved as a validated best practice district through the Supporting Successful Strategies to Achieve Improved Results for Students with Disabilities (S3TAIR) Project. North Salem has been validated as having best practice in the area of Special Education with a focus on co-teaching.
In October 2010, North Salem was awarded S3 TAIR Mentor School status and as such has received a $10,000. 00 grant to support mentoring a school designated as being in need of intervention. In this way, the practice we have worked to develop and sustain at North Salem Central School District will provide valuable support to a school experiencing challenges in meeting the needs of all students. The grant funds are being used to provide professional development in our own district to further hone our skills.
