For anyone who questions the feasibility of inclusion at the high school level, this video proves that true inclusion can be a reality. It shows how a principal and his staff transformed their highly diverse high school, with a student body of 3,200 students, from a set of parallel systems for typical students and students with disabilities into an inclusive community dedicated to the success of all students.

In Successful High School Inclusion: Making Access a Reality for All Students, the principal and his staff discuss with Drs. Marilyn Friend and Leonard Burrello the tipping point that led to a transformation in their entire philosophy. They discuss the engagement of their staff in transforming their high school from a set of parallel systems for typical and disabled students into one dedicated to assisting all students to meet higher expectations.

The major components of their story are:

  • Developing a communal vocabulary to guide their communication.
  • Building structures that support collaboration—including a focus on the curriculum and time.
  • Writing a student profile document developed by a building committee of general education teachers.
  • Co-teaching between general and special education teachers within academic departments.
  • Creating a Learning Center that serves all students.
  • Communicating within a professional community with parents.

An important case study in how one particular school implemented significant educational change, Successful High School Inclusion is an important DVD for administrators, teachers and support staff looking to make their school or district more inclusive on a large-scale basis.
