Special Education

The Special Education department is a team of dedicated staff, including the child study team, special education teachers and teacher assistants, who are dedicated to the growth and well being of each child, from entrance into our program to transition out of school and into an adult environment. We have provided some links that may be helpful to both parents and students.
