Churchill Park is a unique school. Our Functional Mental Disabilities (FMD) Program serves students ages 5 to 21 who have moderate to severe disabilities and need a specialized program that is more flexible than programs available in other JCPS settings. Many students have medical needs requiring a nurse to be on site. Students receive instruction based on Core Content with adaptations to meet needs specified on Individual Education Programs (IEPs).
In addition, the FMD Program offers students an adaptive learning experience that emphasizes functional life skills. We offer Community-Based Instruction (CBI), Other Work Experience (OWE), field trips, a sensory room, a therapeutic swimming pool, a bowling alley, scouting, Special Olympics, basketball, and a new adaptive playground.
Our Early Childhood Program, which serves 3- and 4-year-old students under Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) guidelines, consists of Head Start, Prekindergarten, Jumpstart, and Exceptional Child Education (ECE) classrooms. Students are enrolled in the Early Childhood Program based on income eligibility or identification of a disability.
Other programs at Churchill Park include the Exceptional Child Education (ECE) Materials Center and the ECE Technology Center.
