Who We Are

If your child has a disability, Special Education can help make the difference in your child's life. Your Special Education team consists of certified staff and support personnel who fulfill the philosophy that all children benefit socially, physically, emotionally, creatively, and academically from parents, teachers, and administrators sharing the responsibility of meeting the child's needs within a common learning environment. The educational atmosphere is one of mutual respect, freedom to develop individual potential and interests, and the ability to express ideas, feelings, and imagination.

An Individualized Education Program (IEP) will be developed and effective on a yearly basis. Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) is determined collaboratively on an individual basis with inclusion in the classroom a specific goal.
