Special Services

                            What is a Special Education Program?

Special Education means specifically designed instruction, at no cost to the family, to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability. Individual special education programs are cooperatively developed by an individual education planning (IEP) team which includes parents, teachers, administrators and, when appropriate, other specialists. The IEP team reviews an individual student's functional and academic performance to develop appropriate individual long term goals and short term objectives for the child to achieve during a one year period.
