Special Education Chairman - Danny Warner
EDUCATING AND EMPOWERING CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
Children with special needs have rights to services in school under federal and state laws.
Special education is a set of services, rather than a specific “place” for your child to go. The general education classroom is considered the least restrictive environment (LRE) for most kids. Almost six million students in the U.S. receive special education services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Most special education students spend the majority of the day in general education classrooms.
