The goal in the Pathways Program is to enable and empower all students with exceptionalities.  This means meeting students where they are at and developing attainable goals to show all children that they are capable.  Our vision is that all students are included and supported with their General Education peers, so that all students grow academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

Pathways uses an inclusion based model to support students in the general education classroom.  With teacher assistants, small group work, and classroom supports, Pathways supports students with diagnosed disabilities as well as students who are at risk.  Pathways uses the Response to Intervention Model to provide students with support before they begin to fail or fall behind.  Students who struggle are supported in the classroom, in small group pull-out sessions, or in a 1-on-1 setting with a direct instruction curriculum.

Pathways also provides supports for students with behavioral or sensory needs.  Calvin is working towards providing supports for students  who require high movement, emotional regulation support, or sensory integration.  These supports include a sensory hallway, a hanging swing, and adding a calm down area within our building.

Other supports offered: academic check-ins/check-outs, after school tutoring, student intervention plans, social/emotional/problem solving peer lunch groups, referral for counseling services, referral for speech services, and referral for additional evaluations provided by the All Belong Center for Inclusive Education based in Wyoming, MI.


Calvin is a member school with All Belong Center for Inclusive Education (formerly CLC Network), which promotes the development of people with a variety of abilities and disabilities to live as active, integrated members of their communities.  For more information about All Belong, visit their website.
