“The Special Education Department is committed to providing rigorous, specially designed instruction, behavioral supports, and services to meet each child’s unique learning needs. We believe that all students with special needs will be included in the general education environment.  Special Education is a service not a placement.  All students with special needs are general education students first.”

"Specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of individuals with exceptional needs, whose educational needs cannot be met with modification of the general instruction program..."
