Oswego, Ill.

Collaborative Physical Education is a program in School District 308 that focuses on teaching methods designed to meet the needs of all students. Students with disabilities are accompanied by peer leaders to promote inclusion within the class and school. It is designed for students who cannot safely and/or successfully participate in the regular physical education program due to physical and/or intellectual abilities. This program is a cooperative leadership program established to provide a chance for all students to work to one’s full physical potential. This class allows students with disabilities to be fully included and for students in general education to become friends and leaders. On behalf of the CPE team, John Harazin, Robin Smith, and Sara Duffy, thank you to the students, staff, and generous sponsors for helping make the field day event such a success!
