Haverhill Public Schools DCAP
Massachusetts General Laws requires the adoption and implementation of a District Curriculum Accommodation Plan (DCAP). This plan is intended to guide principals and teachers in ensuring that all possible efforts are made to meet student needs in general education classrooms. Specifically, the DCAP is intended to aid teachers in identifying and accommodating the wide range of student learning abilities and needs that exist in any school or classroom. By describing in a document, the accommodations and instructional supports and strategies that are available in general education and the process for determining effective interventions for struggling learners, it is hoped that the DCAP will help support diverse learners in our schools.
