The value and impact of giving through volunteering is priceless. Faribault Public Schools (FPS) welcomes you to volunteer Anne Marie Leland through community education by helping at one of the Project ABLE COMMUNITY EDUCATION DIRECTOR events, read to and with K-5 youth in Kids World or help adults learn computer skills through Adult Education. If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities or others within FPS, please call Iliana Pinon at 507-333-6000 or email her at ipinon@faribault.k12.mn.us.

EARLY CHILDHOOD SPECIAL EDUCATION

“Help Me Grow”

Faribault Public School’s concern for children doesn’t begin in kindergarten and end at graduation. Our teachers are on hand to work with children who need additional developmental and educational help from birth through age 21. The program that is designed to meet the developmental needs of our youngest learners is the Early Childhood Special Education Program (ECSE). Eligible children are those with developmental delays or with a certain diagnosed physical or mental condition or disorder that results in a delay. Infant and Toddler Intervention provides special services and supports for eligible children birth though age two and their families. Eligible children are those with developmental delays or with a certain diagnosed physical or mental condition or disorder that results in a delay. Preschool Special Education is for children from age three until they begin kindergarten with developmental delays or other disabilities, and who are experiencing challenges in their learning and development.

Early Intervention Early Intervention services for children birth to three years old are provided within the child’s natural environments. These “Routines-Based Interventions” are based on the child’s daily likes and are guided by your family’s priorities. ECSE teachers will provide coaching to parents and caregivers to help promote a child’s development. Families are coached in strategies to help improve developmental areas such as cognition and communication, as well as social, motor, and self-help skills. Preschool Special Education Our program strives to help young children interact successfully with friends and family at home, in the community, and at school. To achieve this goal, the ECSE staff work as partners with the parents and teachers. Faribault Public Schools provides a continuum of special education and related services depending on each student’s unique special education needs and the goals determined by the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP). Services are provided in the least restrictive environment which is appropriate for the individual student.

Our specialists can help you to determine the best services to meet your child’s individual needs. The earlier that needs are identified, the more progress can be made before the child enters kindergarten. If your child is 0-2 years old and you have any questions about his/her development, call 333-6804. For children 3-5 years, call 333-6455.

Minnesota law requires all children to be screened prior to school enrollment. Age three is the recommended age for this health and developmental screening. 3 Reasons to Screen at age 3: 1. Early screening can help set your child up for success in school. 2. Any health or learning concerns can be found earlier—and help provided sooner. 3. Because screening is FREE, it’s easy and it’s good for your child!

*Screening is preferred at three, but can be done at four or five Call 507-333-6460 to schedule a screening appointment.

EARLY CHILDHOOD SCREENING APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE: December 6, 10, 14 January 10, 14, 18 February 1, 7 (Somali Only), 11, 21 March 7

Call 507-333-6460 for an appointment. Early Childhood Screening helps: 1. You find out how your child is doing 2. Connect you with early childhood programs 3. Answer your parenting questions Bring your child to the screening appointment, where we will check your child’s: • vision and hearing • growth and development • immunizations and family history

SERVICE LEARNING As the school year gets under way I am excited to connect with students and different partner organizations to provide opportunities for Service Learning. We had the opportunity in October to participate in Made in Faribault Day which is an event to talk to students about what is manufactured right here in Faribault. The event was a partnership between Faribault Area Chamber, Workforce Center (DEED) South Central College, Workforce Development, Inc. and Faribault Public Schools. The event took place at South Central College as well as three industry tours which included the following companies: Mercury Minnesota, MRG Tool and Die and Sage Glass. The event also allowed for 90 students to tour areas of South Central College labs in the areas of welding, computer integrated machining, and mechatronics. Students were able to talk to instructors about the programs and see exactly what is done in the programs. They were also able to see how the training was applied when touring industry. The program also consisted of a lunch with employers from the area in Manufacturing. 18 Employers that were table host talked to students about different career opportunities within there organization as well as training needed for specific areas. Faribault Public Schools Community Education is hoping to expand our reach in areas of career options for students and look forward to partnerships within the community to expand into different sectors throughout the year.
