Special Services

The Special Services Department coordinates Special Education programs provided to students who have been identified with special needs.   We are responsible for the implementation of special education and  student health services. 

It is our goal to provide students with special needs a free and appropriate public education through student-focused collaboration between parents and district staff.  It is the commitment of this office to ensure that students with disabilities have access to a continuum of services while being educated with non-disabled peers to the maximum extent possible.   Our goal is to provide the individual tools for students to reach their highest level of achievement and school success.

Students with disabilities, regardless of their educational needs, will be an active member of a school community which will actively promote and foster positive attitudes toward acceptance of all students.
