Special Education

Our comprehensive special education program serves students with disabilities ranging in age from birth to 21. All services are developed to facilitate each student reaching his/ her full potential. From early intervention to community based vocational training, students are provided a quality, individualized educational program in the least restrictive environment. Collaboration between families and school staff is essential in making effective educational decisions for students.

The following principles guide special education decision-making in our district:

  1. Families are essential partners in making educational decisions for students.
  2. Special Education services are provided to students as close as possible to typically developing peers while meeting their educational needs. Students will access the rich curricular, instructional, and social opportunities of the general education system, while accessing services to support their individual needs.
  3. Focusing on academic and social-emotional growth is an essential component for each student in our schools.
