Special education and related services are specially designed instructional services developed to support students with disabilities within the general curriculum. The intent of the support services is to enable all students with disabilities to make progress in the general curriculum, to participate in extracurricular and nonacademic activities, and to be educated and participate with disabled and non disabled peers in the public school system. Special Education Services are provided at no cost to parents.
Students qualifying for special education support have needs that will often require support that goes beyond what is normally received in the regular school/classroom setting. Services, as determined appropriate by the Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) Committee, are available in many different instructional settings.
