Students who need special education services to progress in school include those with learning disabilities, speech impairments, physical and intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism, traumatic brain injury and visual & hearing impairments.

Services are available to students beginning on their 3rd birthday, and to students who have not reached their 22nd birthday as of September 1st of the current school year. Students with visual or hearing impairments may receive special education services starting at birth, up through their 22nd birthday.

Department Goals: Ensure a Free Appropriate Public Education in the least restrictive environment. Ensure the rights of students with disabilities and their parents are protected. Assess and ensure program effectiveness of the district's efforts to educate students.
