Special Education


All students participate in collaborative learning environments that promote equity and prepare students to attain their post-secondary goals.   

What is Special Education?

Special education encompasses a set of services, provided at no cost to the parent, designed to meet the unique needs of each student.  

Special education is provided through a collaborative effort and students receive services both within the general education environment and in separate settings.
