Special Education

To ensure that all students with disabilities have available to them a free appropriate public education (FAPE) that emphasizes special education and related services, as specified on an Individualized Education Program (IEP) designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment, and independent living (IDEA 2004).

In serving students with disabilities, we have 3 priorities:

  • Every student is heard, seen, and valued.
  • Parents are partners w/ us in their education.
  • Every student is learning to prepare for “further education, employment, and independent living” (IDEA, 2004).
