Special Education

  • Special education services are based upon the individual needs of the student through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). This plan is developed by a team, including the student, parents, school district professionals, and outside agencies when applicable. Services are delivered in the least restrictive environment (LRE) and are dependent upon the student's individual needs. Each school offers a continuum of supports and services to ensure that every student's needs are met.
