Details about the program can be found by clicking the application link below.
The Knox County Blended Preschool Program is available at 18 sites across the district. These classes are inclusive/blended education classes for children ages 3-5. Up to eight peer models will be enrolled at each site to serve as peer helpers and models to students with disabilities. The blended preschool classroom is a structured teaching environment where students with disabilities and peer models learn together in a classroom staffed with one special education teacher and at least one educational assistant. The Knox County Schools Blended Preschool Program is a high-quality program offering preschoolers, with and without disabilities, challenging experiences and opportunities to develop skills and abilities in a nurturing environment. All Knox County Schools preschool classrooms follow the Connect 4 Learning curriculum, a language rich curriculum focusing on science and math with literacy and social/emotional components embedded throughout. More information about the Connect 4 Learning curriculum can be found at https://www.kaplanco.com/c4l/.
The peer model application process is not intended for students already identified with an educational disability.
