 The mission of special education is to provide a quality and individualized education for all eligible students (birth-21) requiring special education services. This support will develop the content knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable students with disabilities to reach their maximum potential as responsible, productive citizens and life-long learners.

There are many resources available to support parents looking for the best educational opportunities for their children.  If you are concerned about your child's progress, confused about what services are available, or unsure of how to get your child help, browse through the links below.
