Collaborative Co-Teaching (CCT) Part Day Program

LBUSD values all students and recognizes that student diversity and uniqueness add to the fabric of our district. We create school communities that promote appreciation and acceptance of student differences where all students feel a sense of belonging. We provide purposeful and meaningful access and participation in academic and social-emotional growth opportunities. Our “All Means All” belief system means that we are better together.
