Mosaica School Design
TPAAK is committed to full adherence to the rights of special education students as provided for in federal law. We are absolutely committed to meeting the needs of each and every special education student who enrolls in this charter school.
In fact, the power of the Paragon Curriculum to engage students through their unique talents—whether they be in art, drama, music, or exploration—can provide a vehicle for recapturing a special education student through a visible demonstration of those talents and, once again, ignite the enthusiasm of learning.
For example, a fifth grade student in a Mosaica school who came to the program severely dyslexic was able to learn to decode language through explicit phonics instruction and benefited from a personalized software tutorial program that helped him accelerate to grade level. Additionally, that same student proved to be a brilliant painter who took a leadership role in his classroom during the afternoon Paragon Curriculum program. He was able to provide a wonderful synopsis to the plot of Shakespeare’s MacBeth as he was designing the set. The student not only began to master decoding skills that enabled him to break through and begin to read, he also provided an accurate rendering of the story because he connected to Shakespeare through his paintbrush.
