NFDL School District Looks At Establishing Charter School


The North Fond du Lac School District, SSM Health and Agnesian HealthCare will partner to start a charter school in North Fond du Lac. The North Fond du Lac School Board Monday night voted to support establishment of The Treffert Way Academy Charter School and for submission of a charter school grant. The grant would be for five years to plan and implement the charter school. It would be named in honor of Dr. Darold Treffert (pictured) and the work he has done for children with autism and savant syndrome.  North Fond du Lac Schools Superintendent Aaron Sadoff says the school would be for children with exceptional learning needs and disabilities. He says, “So they are looking at 40 kids 5K through Sixth Grade. That will be housed somewhere in North Fond du Lac and its going to be a teamwork with medical professionals along with school professionals, other groups we’re looking at.” Sadoff says some kids can’t learn through traditional methods. He says, “There’s some students that have unbelievable thought processes called Hyperlexia can learn to read and things, but they don’t know how to maybe interact and adapt and understand social cues and it’s a whole spectrum. But what happens a lot of times and it’s not just those students, but we have other students that learn in different modalities.” The Treffert Way Academy would be the first charter school in the North Fond du Lac School District.
