The Regional School District #17 Integrated Special Needs Preschool Program located at Burr District Elementary School in Higganum is seeking 3 and 4 year olds for the 2018-2019 school year. This program consists of peer students and identified special education students in a language-rich, structured environment focused on center-based learning.
