STING RAY Curriculum Plan

STING RAY Curriculum

STING RAY uses a research-based individualized, person-centered, adaptive curriculum built upon the student’s individual needs, strengths, and interests.  The curriculum is a “clock hour” structure with 5 Domain Clusters: Career Development and Employment, Academic Enrichment, Campus and Community Engagement, Independent Living, and Self-Determination.

Those five clusters are subdivided into 10 Curricular Domains (Self-Determination; Academics and Technology; Financial Planning and Money Management; Socialization, Relationships, and Self Esteem; Employment; Travel and Mobility; Community Living; Home Living; Personal Care; and Health and Safety).

The STING RAY curriculum is further detailed with the use of 115 + Domain Competencies.  The competency goals were developed using the Florida Department of Education Exceptional Education Course Descriptions and several professional resources.

Project 10 STING RAY Curriculum Design Principles
Project 0 STING RAY curriculum was designed according to Wehman and Kregel’s (1997) principles. These principles indicate that curriculum for our students should be individualized and person-centered, functional or practical to maximize independence, adaptive or adjustable to meet each student’s needs, and ecologically relevant or based upon the student’s environments and major activities.
