The Adaptive PE program for the Columbia County School System
The adaptive PE teachers believe in the value of physical activity, fitness, and exercise for all students, regardless of their ability level. Students with disabilities should be offered the same opportunity to participate in Physical Education classes but may require a modified curriculum or a specifically designed program. We adhere to “adapting, modifying, and changing” a physical activity so that it is appropriate for the student with a disability to ensure the most success while maintaining the least restrictive environment.
We collaborate with the Special Olympics Program of Georgia and host our local games in March. Our students are taught using the Special Olympics training programs and Georgia PE educational standards.
Your adaptive teachers team includes Anne Way, Mimi Tom, Joy Beaird, and Meg McGowen.
