Our Philosophy and Mission Statement

Special Education is an integral part of the total educational program, which assures all students a free appropriate public education. This inclusive philosophy endorses the concepts that:

  • Students with disabilities will be educated with their non-disabled peers to the greatest extent possible within the least restrictive environment.
  • All students, regardless of disabilities will be provided access to the general curriculum in accordance to their individual needs.

Appropriate curriculum modifications will be provided for any student with disabilities whose individual needs cannot be met through the state's required curriculum elements. Instructional services will be provided which allows for learning in an environment that is most appropriate and least restrictive to meet the student's needs.
