Early Childhood and Elementary Special Education Department (ECE)

  • Elementary Special Education Programs


    The Elementary Special Education Program provides and oversees services for children in grades kindergarten through fifth/sixth grade who experience a variety of disabilities. 


    Students eligible for special education must receive special education services in their "least restrictive environment." Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), school districts are required to maintain a full continuum of educational placement options for students. 


    The Individualized Education Program (IEP) team determines the educational placement for each student after thoughtful and careful dialogue regarding the functional and academic needs of the student.
