Welcome to Special Education!

The Special Education Department’s mission is to provide services and support to students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) in the least restrictive environment. In addition, our purpose is to ensure parents, students, and staff work together to make certain that appropriate services are provided on an individualized basis for every child with a disability. Special Education strives to create and maintain an effective learning environment by providing high-quality, evidence-based instruction and services for all students and we believe that all students can learn and succeed.

Does your child need/have an IEP?

If your child is new to the district and has an IEP, please indicate that during registration and provide copy of current IEP. Our Special Education Department will request copies of paperwork from student's previous school

If you would like your child assessed. Please do the following:

  1. Make sure your child is enrolled in their school of residence. (Use school locator tool to find out school of residence)

  2. Write a letter or an email to the school Principal indicating you would like your child assessed and provide reasons for concern.

  3. If your student already has an IEP and you would like to address concerns, please contact the assigned case manager.

  4. Once the assessment team at your school site receives the inquiry, they will be in touch with you for next steps.
