Mountain Heights Academy, formerly Open High School of Utah, has learned a lot over the past 8 years in operation. Through failures and successes our faculty have elevated their open pedagogy and practice to best serve the needs of their students. Special education students benefit greatly from openness. General ed teachers can adapt and tier open content to meet student needs. Special ed teachers have access to a wealth of open educational resources to remix to customize lessons for their students. Open pedagogy + open practice + special ed students = winning. The best practices discovered for SpED also make the general ed courses better as well.
