For Families

Each of LifeShare's Educational Resources Programs has been developed in response to the identified needs of public school systems, with the purpose of providing special education placement and programming for students whose disabilities or behaviors have become too complex to address in a less specialized school environment. LifeShare Educational Resources Schools currently operates three state-approved EDP or Private Day Programs in Arizona and one in Colorado:

  • Ocotillo Elementary Campus in Phoenix, Arizona (partnership with the Washington Elementary School District)
  • Main Campus in Gilbert, Arizona (serving partnering school districts across the East Valley)
  • Sunnyside Campus in Tucson, Arizona (partnership with the Sunnyside Unifed School District)
  • Trevista Elementary School K-5 (partnership with Denver Public Schools)

Recognizing the importance of generalizing positive behavioral improvement across school, community, and home environments, we strive to develop strong relationships with students and their families. Our primary objective for each student enrolled in its programs is to develop the requisite skills necessary to support a full transition to a district’s least restrictive environment. We work with the home schooled and the district throughout the IEP process to establish goals, services, and supports, which accelerate this transition.

Since 2008, the Schools have measured the levels of satisfaction for the parents/guardians of our enrolled students, confirming the following results:

  • 92% of parents/guardians believe that our staff encourages educational achievement
  • 95% are satisfied with staff-to-parent communications
  • 94% believe that our staff effectively address students’ behavioral needs
  • 94% believe that we prepare their child to return to a less restrictive environment
