ASPIRE Program

ASPIRE is an acronym that stands for Agency, Safety, Positivity, Inclusion, Respect, and Equity. These six pillars will guide the future of this program as we continue to make changes to support our students in this program.

Students in the ASPIRE Program at Allen Elementary receive additional supports as designated through their Individualized Education Program (IEP). These classrooms are special day classes (SDC) with a variety of structures to support student learning. The ASPIRE Program at Allen Elementary is a compassionate therapeutic educational program that serves children with significant emotional, social, and behavioral needs. It is dedicated to the cultivation of life and academic skills with the goal of developing high-functioning individuals who have self-worth, dignity, hope, and resilience and who will contribute to society. The program’s focus is to develop interpersonal relationships, in order to build trust, safety, confidence, and the feeling of personal importance. These relationship skills allow students to discover their strengths, their ability, and their desire to learn and make academic growth and utilize skills to make safe and positive choices and function daily to their best ability.
