Special Education

This website was created for parents and other members of the community who are seeking information regarding topics in special education or processes followed by the district in regard to special education.

The Goals of the Special Education Department: 
  • Identifying and providing interventions for students with disabilities at no cost to the parent/guardian.
  • Serving students in the least restrictive environment with non-disabled peers.
  • Maintaining high expectations for all students leading to independence and potential employment at the end of the instructional program.
