Extra resources, parent volunteers and more principal control over staffing have helped Quitman Street Renew School in Newark, N.J., expand following the closure of another school. About 25% of the school's prekindergarten to eighth-grade students receive special-education services, and the school offers various self-contained and inclusive classroom options. "We're preparing them as college-ready students, and in order to give them that opportunity, we must give them the opportunity to grow in a variety of settings," said special-education teacher Charlette Givens.
