The Integrated Services Department stems from Mapleton’s commitment to improving service and outcomes for children.
Using a holistic approach to individual students and schools, the Departments of Special Education and Student Support Services have merged and are now “Integrated Services." There is a strong commitment to improved service and outcomes for children. Integrated Services is intended to provide a comprehensive range of services at the school level and resources to respond to student needs.
Realizing that regardless of the role we each play in supporting the whole child, we need to assure that we all have the training and professional development we need to make a difference for each child.
