Welcome to Our 

Special Education Department

Our philosophy is to provide each student with an individualized education program designed to meet their unique needs, in accordance with Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. We believe that each student, regardless of exceptionalism, is entitled to this opportunity and that it be in the least restrictive environment possible. Special educators work collaboratively with general educators and share the responsibility for ensuring that all students experience success. We believe that ALL students can thrive when given sufficient opportunity to learn...

Our goals are to:

  • Provide a free, appropriate educational program and as necessary, related services (e.g., Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech-Language Therapy) for each child requiring special education, from age three through twenty-one years
  • Foster an environment that maximizes learning for all students
  • Encourage parental involvement and understanding of special education services offered 
  • Partner with students to support their short and long term social, emotional, academic and life goals
  • Provide appropriate vocational and transitional services to students with disabilities to develop post-secondary school goals and foster long term success
