Our overall philosophy is focused on meeting the needs of our diverse student population with the goal of moving all students along the continuum of learning so as to meet their true potential. We have created programming designed to meet the needs of our 11 member districts as well as many additional communities in both central and western Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. We offer programs to provide direct service to students, families and staff. Our dedicated team of professionals care so deeply for our students and strive to give them the most nurturing and innovative learning environment possible.
CAPS has eleven programs in our neighboring districts’ schools servicing a diverse low incident student population. In addition, our building in Westminster houses our Administrative Offices and the elementary and junior senior high school Gateway programs. We understand that to best meet the needs of our students, families and districts involves collaboration. We work closely with area programs, agencies and support providers to partner to best identify and meet the unique needs of each individual student we service.
Wonderful things happen every day here in the CAPS Collaborative programs and I am proud to be a part of the dedicated and talented team of people who make CAPS such a great place for our students to be. I look forward to working with families in the future and encourage families to be involved in our programming. Watch the website for upcoming open forum dates designed to get families involved in what CAPS can do in the future. I look forward to the continued collaboration that such dialog will bring.
