The wonderful entity that is Campus School should not be dissolved by Administrative intentions, (however guided), to force the program off-campus. I taught at Campus School from 1981-1986 and know well how students and parents internalized the spirit of being a vibrant part of a college community, well beyond just being a special needs family. The job placements throughout the campus gave our students independence, pride, and a sense of contribution.
I remember Doug Flutie stopping in at Roberts Hall between his classes and being met as an equal by our students, fellow members of the Boston College Community.
Distance Campus School and you destroy that “Community”.
