Welcome to Special Education

  • Special education ensures the unique needs of students with disabilities are met through additional services, supports, programs, specialized placements, or environments.  Special education services are provided to eligible students at no cost to families.  The core purpose of special education is to provide specially designed instruction and services so that students with disabilities are provided access to the same educational programs and/or activities that are available to their nondisabled peers.
