What is Special Education
Special education is specially designed instruction, at no cost to the parents, to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability, including: instruction conducted in the classroom, in the home, in hospitals and institutions, and in other settings. The purpose of Special Education is to provide students with a Free and Appropriate Public Education in compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Special Education should be an ongoing collaborative process between students, teachers, families, and administrators and our belief is that all students can master difficult learning objectives if they are provided with engaging, differentiated instruction that is geared towards individual student needs.
