The department's goal is to provide students with a free, appropriate, public education in the least restrictive environment. A full continuum of Special Education services is available including in-class support, self-contained classes, and resource programs. The full array of services includes psychological, education and social services; speech, physical and occupational therapy. Caring, creative, highly qualified special educators continuously assess programs and make modifications and accommodations based on the students’ individual needs. Staff members are committed to providing the tools that will enable students to become successful and independent in the classroom and out in the community.
