• Mission Statement:

    The mission of the DVHS Special Education department is to provide supports and services for extraordinary educational opportunities for every learner. 

    Special Education services are based on the individual needs of a student through the Individual Education Plan developed by a team of professionals including the parents and student. Services are delivered in the least restrictive environment but depending on the student each school has a continuum of services to support the needs of the students. The continuum of special education services range from the general classroom to homebound services.
