I’m very confused about the news piece on the M.O.V.E program that will be starting in September. Why now is this program starting? Where were these students before? Why did it say this is the first M.O.V.E program in the area when there has been one for years in Ballston Spa?

A.  At this time, we have a group of students who require similar programming that can best be met through a MOVE curriculum. The students were in various specialized classes within the district receiving individualized programs. We recognized that we had individual students who’s needs were similar enough to group together to form one classroom and the decision was made to create a MOVE classroom. The news story did not indicate that our program would be the first. The Center for Disabilities and Ballston Spa have MOVE programs.
