Receives National Association of Special Education Teachers Award
The League School received the coveted 2021 National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET) Award School of Excellence Award. NASET is a national membership organization that supports those preparing for or teaching in the field of special education. The school was one of 127 schools across the country to receive this year’s award. The organization bestows this recognition on private special education schools that meet rigorous professional criteria and have demonstrated exceptional dedication, commitment, and achievement in the field of special education.
“Receiving the NASET School of Excellence Award is a reflection on the League staff and administration who continue to create a learning environment that is unique and supportive,” said educational consultant, Dr. Margaret Reed. “Every day the school challenges our students and holds high expectations for them without overwhelming or discouraging them, and this award speaks to the efficacy of our approach.”
In March, League received notification from NASET of its eligibility for the 2021 award. The school provided documentation on a range of school components for consideration: staff licensure, student-teacher ratio, types of services, setting, student population, multiculturalism, and admissions procedures. NASET announced the winners in June.
“Being distinguished as meeting or exceeding this national standard for excellence is an accomplishment for which our entire school community — teachers, students, parents, administrator, clinical staff, and support staff — should rightfully feel proud,” said Margaret.
