Bayside MLK is an Unconditional Education (UE) school. Seneca's UE model empowers our community with the skills and resources needed to support students academically, behaviorally, and emotionally in a multi-tiered system of supports.
What makes UE and Bayside MLK different?
UE differs from traditional education in that any student can receive support services without qualifying for special education services first.
Services are integrated and coordinated between staff members because all staff members are responsible for providing interventions.
Teams use data to identify student needs as early as possible, and to monitor progress once students receive interventions.
What is COST?
COST (Coordination of Services Team) is a multidisciplinary team made up of school leaders, service providers, general education teachers, and support staff. COST receives, reviews, and responds to individual student referrals made by teachers who have identified students needing additional support.
What to do if you are concerned about your student's progress at school?
Please speak with your child's teacher or a team member about your concerns, and they may submit a referral to COST. Our hope is that with early intervention we can address your student's individual needs.
