Special Education

A Message from the Assistant Commissioner

Welcome to the Office of Special Education website. We have designed this website to be as helpful as possible to parents, students, school districts and others interested in the education of children with disabilities.
This is an exciting and challenging time for all of us. Students with disabilities are telling us that they can meet higher standards and are expecting more out of all of us to ensure that the supports are there to help them achieve the knowledge and skills necessary to live independent lives. Meeting the higher expectations of our students requires that families, educators and community leaders have access to the information and supports needed to assist students in the development and pursuit of their life goals.
Please be sure to register to receive by electronic mail the latest memoranda and other technical assistance documents from Special Education.
