Special Education

  • The Administrator of Special Education and Pupil Personnel Services provides the overall direction for the Special Education Programming and related services for students with disabilities from age 3 to age 22.  Every school has Special Education Coordinators and Educational Team Leaders to lead the special education programs for their school.  

    Special education services, as mandated by state and federal law, are available to students with disabilities.  Federal and state laws declare that no child should be excluded from a free, appropriate public education because of a disability in the areas of Autism, Developmental Delay, Intellectual, sensory, neurological, emotional, communication, physical, specific learning, or health.  The law provides, at no cost to the family, any special services a child needs in order to access the curriculum and make effective progress. A team of appropriate staff will evaluate any student with an area of suspected disability. The team, including the parent/guardian’s input, will review the evaluation data and will recommend appropriate actions.
