What is Virginia Randolph Education Center ?
VREC is a program for students with disabilities that provides both academic and behavioral educational services.
What is the goal of VREC?
The ultimate goal of the program is to give students intensive structure and support in order to equip them with the tools needed for academic and/or behavioral improvement, so that they are able to obtain positive outcomes and return to their home schools.
Students that VREC is designed to support:
- K-6 students with disabilities who demonstrate significant challenges with appropriate behavior in the comprehensive school.
VREC is a positive and welcoming place that allows students with disabilities to experience the many aspects of a comprehensive school in the least restrictive environment possible. The curriculum is Standards of Learning (SOL) based but is modified to meet the needs of a very diverse population. Classrooms are designed with adaptive equipment and state-of-the-art technology resources. Accommodations are barrier-free and include a handicapped-accessible playground complete with sensory activities, a garden, greenhouse, cafe, mobile library and rooms with soothing colors and lighting to elicit a calming effect for children with sensory and behavioral issues.
Teachers and staff are highly dedicated professionals with a commitment to provide the most supportive and appropriate education to the students. All teachers are certified in exceptional education. Paraprofessionals and assistants provide help in the classroom as well as Targeted Assistance to students who require one-on-one interaction to find success.
Virginia Randolph Education Center firmly believes its students should have all of the experiences of a comprehensive school at a level that can best support them. It is a hopeful place that provides care, support and a true school experience to some of Henrico County’s most exceptional children.
