About

"In special education, there's too much emphasis placed on the deficit and not enough on the strength."

-Temple Grandin

INTENT STATEMENT

To close the achievement gap and increase growth with our students with disabilities

Services provided by the special education department listed are included but not conclusive.

Each school in the system provides special education services to eligible students ages 3-22 years in a continuum of educational settings ranging from consultation services to self-contained. These programs are designed to meet the student's individual needs based on their identified disability. This includes intellectually gifted students whose abilities require special education services to meet their needs. The IEP Team determines the level of services for each student. The Team strives to provide the least restrictive environment (LRE) for all students.
