Inclusion Programs

Florida Inclusion Network  Paul Laurence Dunbar Middle School  offers a wide range of programs to provide service for students with varying exceptionalities.   Students with exceptionalities are placed in classes to meet their needs based on their individualized educational plan while meeting course and credit requirements for middle school.   At PLDMS we recognize the middle school experience as a transitional time for students.  In conjunction with a highly experienced and diversified ESE teaching staff that utilizes the latest technological and direct instructional methods for academics, life and social skills are at the forefront of the experience for each student.  A focus on independent function and social skills through community based instruction and hands on real world activities helps prepare our students for high school and beyond.
