Humboldt Unified to Provide Opportunities for Students with Impairments.
Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, Coyote Springs Elementary School and Glassford Hill Middle School will begin hosting multiple individuals with visual or hearing impairments from across the quad city area and place the students in general education courses.
Humboldt Unified School District Director of Special Services Stephanie Rowe, with a committee of other specialized directors in the quad cities, were looking to address a problem where instructors did not have ample time to spend with students who face impairments because the teachers had to travel across the various schools in the cities. Now, the instructors will be centralized and allow more time for learning and understanding.
