The purpose of Project MAX is to increase the capacity of Pennsylvania schools to provide all students, including those with complex instructional needs, with maximum access to and learning of the general education curriculum and the Pennsylvania Core Standards.
Mission: Intermediate Unit 6 believes that by presuming competence of all learners we will maximize student learning and provide meaningful access to PA Core Standards while empowering education professionals to foster an environment of universal understanding and acceptance.
Vision: All IU classrooms will:
- be learning environments where students are engaged in standards aligned instruction
- allow teachers to collaborate together to optimize student outcomes
- enable all staff members to presume competence by examining their assumptions and beliefs
- elevate consciousness and awareness of students with disabilities
