Efforts are under way in Montclair, N.J., schools to move more students with disabilities out of self-contained classrooms and out-of-district placements back to traditional schools to be educated in more inclusive settings. "My goal is to develop the appropriate supports for classified students," said Dr. Monty Helfgott, a former special educator and the district's new inclusion facilitator. "Some kids do have difficulties and aren't able to be included in general classrooms. But many of them can be."
