    To help every child succeed, our Office of Special Education focuses on academic outcomes, aspirations for our students, and regulatory compliance. Today, we are providing our students with more stability and continuity, new opportunities for inclusion, and higher-quality programs that are aligned with district efforts to help all our students reach a high standard. 



    The Office of Special Education (OSE) has developed guidelines and online resources to support distance learning opportunities for students grades K-12.  The goal of providing distance learning opportunities is to extend learning opportunities while schools are closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

    Please visit the Office of Special Education School Closure Resources website.

    Our students have equitable opportunities to engage in innovative, high-quality instruction in the least restrictive environment, empowering each youth to achieve at high levels leading to post-secondary success.


    To eliminate the achievement gap by providing equal access to high-quality comprehensive services that support student achievement, family, and community engagement.
