Pupil Services

Mission

To provide academic, emotional and related service programming for students of special needs while maintaining and ensuring compliance according to state and federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act regulations.

Vision

We are a school district that provides an inclusive education environment for students with special needs by ensuring the maximum amount of our students are spending the majority of the time accessing the curriculum with their general education peers. We meet the unique needs of our learners through a robust and rigorous set of supports that provides high quality academic, emotional and physical support. We engage our parents and community partners as vital members of our children’s successes. Through multi-leveled supports we will decrease the achievement gap between our general education population and our students of highest need.
