Special Education Program
Mission: All persons involved with our students will create quality educational experiences within a positive learning environment in which individuals achieve their fullest potential and contribute as members of their community.
The Special Education Program provides services to disabled students from 3 through 21 years old. Each student receives the program and related services requested by the local District's Committee on Special Education as specified in the student's Individualized Education Program. Most classes are located in component district school buildings and provide opportunities for participation in the least restrictive environment.
