Welcome To Special Education

  • If you suspect your child (including preschooler) has a physical, mental, or emotional disability, please confer with you local school principal or the Special Education Department to discuss your concerns. Each school has a special services team to address student needs, develop interventions, and engage in pre-referral evaluation and case management activities. Special education programs available include self-contained classrooms, cross-categorical resources, and supportive services in the regular classroom. As much as possible, special needs students are educated at their neighborhood schools within regular classrooms. Severely disabled students are served in specially equipped District programs located at various District schools. The District also offers services to student's attending private or parochial schools within the district.
