Greengate

 

Greengate School is a self-contained educational setting for students with significant special needs. As part of a regionalized system within Yolo County SELPA, Greengate School serves students with autism and multiple disabilities. Greengate is also the location of several administrative and staff offices, including the First Steps Infant Program, Yolo County California Children’s Services Medical Therapy Unit, and various YCOE therapists and specialists.

The first priority for Greengate school is to provide a physically and emotionally safe environment for all students. To support this priority, a variety of well-trained staff are available to provide a rich curriculum that addresses students’ academic, social, emotional, behavioral, self-help, community instruction, vocational and recreational needs. Parents, caregivers, student volunteers, community members and administrators are important team members. The goal for all students is to engage in multiple opportunities for the meaningful practice of functional life skills and independence.

 

Functional life skills and practical academics are the basis for the curriculum, including the following:

  • Community-Based Instruction
  • Gardening
  • Recycling
  • Meal Preparation
  • Home and Life Skills
  • Indoor and Outdoor Recreation
  • Mobility Opportunities Via Education (MOVE Program)
  • Integration and Inclusion with nearby comprehensive campuses
