Since 2009-2010 school year, Appomattox County High School has been implementing the principles and core-components of the I'm Determined Project with their students with disabilities. Students at the elementary, middle and high school level have all completed the One Pager, and at ACHS, most of the students are using it to develop their IEPs during their IEP meetings. Students, teachers and parents are committed to the program and have seen positive results in the areas of choice-making, problem-solving, self-regulation, disability awareness, and peer-mentoring.
