Special Education

special education resources picture


The mission of special education is to facilitate appropriate education for students with erse learning needs and abilities; this is accomplished through collaboration with general education to provide a continuum of services delivered in the least restrictive environment in partnership with families.

We believe that:

  • All students can learn.
  • Learning must be meaningful to the student.
  • Special education is not a place, but a designated array of supports and services.
  • Special education and general education serve the same purposes.
  • All educators share the responsibility for the education of all learners.
  • Education will provide appropriate instruction, resources, and support to meet erse learning needs.
  • Students should have equal opportunities to participate in educational programs and school activities which are appropriate for their education.
  • Respect and dignity are essential in the learning process.
  • Collaboration and communication are vital to the educational partnership among students, parents and educators.
