We are proud to announce the the Primary Language Program, formerly at East Fairhaven Elementary, will be moving to two beautiful classrooms at Rochester Memorial School.
The SMEC Multidisciplinary Learning Center is a new Collaborative special education program offering students
with significant physical and medical needs a safe and supportive learning environment. Located at the state of
the art East Fairhaven Elementary School, the program is a substantially separate classroom serving students in
grades 1-5 and follows a 180 day school calendar with an additional 5 week part-time extended year summer
component. School year program hours are from 8:45 A.M. to 2:45 P.M.
With a 3:1 student to educational staff ratio, the MLC offers instruction in core academic and specialty areas
modified as appropriate to meet the students’ needs and as documented in their IEPs. Our special education
teacher(s), RN, CNA(s) and paraprofessional(s) work together as a team to create an environment where
students with physical and medical challenges are able to succeed. Our speech pathologist, physical therapist,
occupational therapist and school adjustment counselor are available for therapeutic services as needed.
The mission of the MLC is to facilitate a student’s personal growth in a supportive, safe environment. Students
are referred to the program by their Local Educational Authority (LEA).
