When Hampton teachers returned to school after summer break, they were caught unprepared with a major change — most would now be collaborating with a special education teacher, and up to half of their students would have disabilities.
Parents were called in for last-minute meetings and asked to sign off on paperwork moving their children from special education classrooms to general classrooms in the fall. The change happened in middle and high schools.
The district’s new special education director, Elisabeth Powers, dissolved 37 percent of self-contained special education classrooms, going from 175 to 110 over the summer.
