Special Education... A Service, Not a Place

The Special Services Department is comprised of two specific areas that support students: Special Education and Health Services. The focus of the department is to provide students with disabilities or health-related challenges the tools and resources to benefit from their educational program.

Our goal is to partner with families regarding the individual needs of children. Our District has a continuum of services to meet the needs of our diverse student population.
