These children are going to need assistance in all areas of life. So what good is the diploma if there are inadequate services to provide them with access to a life in the community after graduation? At present, the Fairfax County Public School System/Community Services Board has no funding to assist the MR graduates for 2009 and beyond. That means no supported employment, no day programs. I think this is a more critical issue than worrying about what kind of diploma the invididual graduates with.
