About the Office of Special Education

This site/office is a resource to teachers, administrators, and parents of students with exceptional educational needs due to disability, or learners who are culturally and/or linguistically diverse or have some other special need. The Office of Special Education is one of three offices under the Exceptional Student Services Unit (along with the Office of Facility Schools and the Office of Gifted Education).
