In collaboration with Newton Public Schools, the EDCO students participate in both integrated and self-contained settings. Students enrolled in general education courses receive instruction from a general education teacher with supplemental aids and services as determined by their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Self-contained classes, geared towards individualized small group instruction, are taught by certified Teachers of the Deaf. All students have access to the full-range of academic and extra-curricular offerings at both F.A. Day Middle School and Newton North High School in addition to EDCO sponsored activities to promote academic excellence, community involvement and leadership skills, particularly within the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community.

In an environment where language and diversity are valued, the EDCO program staff offer specially designed instruction using a variety of communication modalities, including American Sign Language (ASL), audition and spoken English.  The program provides services designed to meet individual learning needs with a specific regard for language, communication modality and choice of amplification (i.e. hearing aids, cochlear implants). With an interdisciplinary staff consisting of Teachers of the Deaf, Interpreters, a Counselor and a Speech and Language Pathologist, the program maintains a commitment to providing meaningful learning opportunities that foster academic and social excellence.
