The Office of Special Education is a service-oriented organization that seeks to improve the education experience for children with disabilities. We strive to nurture a dedicated staff through intense professional development opportunities, field experience, and individual accountability. In keeping with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and State law, we help local schools and districts provide effective educational programs to students with disabilities, ages 3-20, who need special education and related services.
